Fulham Broadway

Fulham Broadway is a famous street within the area although it is often used to name the area in the immediate vicinity of the street and the station. From 1880-1952, Fulham Broadway underground station was called Walham Green. The station itself is now set inside Fulham Broadway shopping centre.

However the modern name of Walham Green is now known as the Moore Park Estate, regarded as one of the most desirable parts of Fulham to own a property. Houses are frequently sold at well above the million threshold with investment from city professionals. Many property developments and refurbishments often take place.

Some of the roads included in the conservation area include:

Moore Park Road, Holmead Road, Rumbold Road, Maxwell Road, Brittania Road, Waterford Road, Fulham Broadway, Kings Road and Fulham Road

The area predominantly consists of middle-class professionals and families. Residents include Gloria Hunniford and Loyd Grossman.

Nearby attractions include the bars, clubs and restaurants of the Kings Road, Fulham Broadway and Imperial Wharf.
