Then you will take control of a Boeing 737, which is the biggest selling airliner ever built. The simulator will take you to a world in the sky, and you will experience just what it is like to fly a plane.
From around the year 700 when the present day site was acquired by Bishop Waldhere, Fulham Palace has served as a Bishop’s residence for over twelve centuries. It has been home to the Bishop of London since the Tudor times giving a summer retreat to the country during the summer months.
The original Manor covered the whole of what is now Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing, Acton and Finchley. It was one of many palaces that various Bishops could access London which was essential at the time of the court.
Around the time of the 16th Century there were nearly two hundred of these homes serving twenty one bishops. Fulham Palace has a museum, and many historic rooms for visitors to explore. It also hosts regular exhibitions and there are splendid garden walks to partake in.
