Fulham is an affluent area of southwest London in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, SW6 located 3.7 miles (6.0 km) south west of Charing Cross. It is situated in between Putney and Chelsea. Two Premiership football clubs, Fulham and Chelsea, are situated in Fulham. Having been through many transformations in its history, today it is a green London area within very close reach of Chelsea and Kensington and this is reflected in the higher local house prices.
