Parsons Green is an upmarket area of South West London, in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. At its heart is the triangular green that gives the station its name. It was once the ground for Fulham Football Club and is now famous for its gastro pub, the White Horse, which has tables overlooking the grass and mature trees. There are plenty of fantastic restaurants, cafes and delis in the area and a wealth of interesting outlets to explore including boutiques, galleries and antiques shops.
The area in the immediate vicinity of the tube station is residential so there are few hotels near Parsons Green station. Looking either south towards Putney Bridge, north in Fulham or west in Chelsea there is a selection of 3, 4 and 5 star hotels as well as a serviced apartment block to choose from. The Hotel at Chelsea (****) is part of the Chelsea Village entertainment complex including shops, restaurants, the harbour and Chelsea Football Club stadium. Parsons Green hotels are suitable for guests visiting Chelsea or Fulham football matches. Although this makes it sound like the area might have a rowdy atmosphere, it is actually one of the most quiet and pleasant parts of London, with a real village feel.
Parsons Green is a tube stop in Zone 2, in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. It’s on the branch of the District Line that runs out to Wimbledon, in South West London. The station opened in 1880 and is just north of the park it was named after.
Today Parsons Green is a pleasant piece of grassland surrounded by mature trees, with a gastro pub at the edge where you can take a drink. There are plenty of other great places to eat, shop and drink in the area, with interesting little boutiques and delis to be explored.
Fulham Football Club once played on the grass at Parsons Green. They haven’t moved too far away – their current stadium is at Putney Bridge Station, one stop along the District Line. It’s called Craven Cottage. This is a great base for football fans as one stop along the District Line in the other direction, at Fulham Broadway, is Chelsea’s football stadium, Stamford Bridge. Visitors can take a tour of the stadium or check out the on-site museum.
There’s also a multi-screen cinema at Fulham Broadway and a further selection of bars, clubs and restaurants.
The Royal Court Theatre is further down King’s Road. It’s a highly regarded company dedicated to new writers.
Hurlingham Park has a stadium that is used for rugby, football and athletics. It’s the home of Hammersmith and Fulham Rugby Football Club, and it’s also known for being the setting of Monty’s Python’s “Upper Class Twit of the Year” sketch.
The Thames is not too far away, where you can enjoy a scenic walk or cycle ride.
