Fulham is situated in the London borough of Hammersmith & Fulham in the south-west of England's capital.

Down by the famous Thames river, the place is an ideal lookout spot for the university boat race that takes place on the water every year - it is also in a prime location for reaching some of the top shopping areas of London such as Kensington and the central parts of town.

Would-be tenants should be aware that these are rough estimates and properties can be found for various monthly rental prices throughout the area depending on how the landlord has looked after the place or where it is situated in the area.

Fluctuating market conditions mean that prices are changing on a quite regular basis - for instance, rental prices are quite different to what they were just 12 months ago in some parts of London.

property to rent in London is often the preferred option for young professionals in the early stages of their careers, as property prices in the city are generally quite pricey.

Transport

Fulham Broadway London Underground station is located on the Wimbledon branch of the District Line.

It is in Travelcard Zone 2 and is sandwiched in between West Brompton and Parsons Green, making it very close to the home of Chelsea Football Club, Stamford Bridge.

On match days at Chelsea, this is the place that you want to be heading to in order to get to the game.

At present, residents of property to rent in Fulham will be able to take the train from Fulham Broadway and get into Oxford Street - via a bus - in around 40 minutes, making the place well situated in terms of reaching the Central London shopping hub.

Amenities

Craven Cottage is the home of Fulham Football Club, who aree owned by Mohammad al-Fayed, play in the English Premier League and are involved in the Europa League this season. Some big teams from the rest of Europe will be descending on the area over the course of the next few months - depending on how far the Cottagers progress - and there will be an opportunity for locals to get their hands on tickets.
