  • Visitor Information

Bishop's Park, a green oasis in Fulham which runs north of the River Thames from All Saints church to Craven Cottage, is a hive of activity on Boat Race day. Located opposite the start of the race by Putney Bridge, Bishop's Park is the main hub of free entertainment laid on by the local Hammersmith and Fulham Council. Family friendly entertainment, beer tents and food are all part of the build-up from 12noon and is relayed live on the big screens. A second focus of free entertainment is at Furnivall Gardens near Hammersmith Bridge, mid-way along the course, but the Bishop's Park hub is the larger of the two.

About Bishops Park

This long strip of parkland running alongside the Thames with views over the river towards Putney gets its name from the former resident of Fulham Palace which lies within the park. Traditionally the summer home of the Bishops of London, Fulham Palace which lies within Bishops Park is certainly worth a visit. More about Bishops Park
