a walk to bishop’s palace in fulham

3 Apr

london good friday 2015 6.43pm

i found a gay group that has walks of 2hrs, 4miles instead of the usual 10miles walks.

i was telling a guy i was chatting to at a gay meetup group that most walks are more than 8miles and they are too much for me; and he told me of this gay walking group that do 4miles walks. and that there is a walk in fulham this afternoon. so i went. and it turned out to be a pleasant walk from fulham to the river at putney bridge.

it is the start point of the oxford /cambridge boat race held annually with the boats going upriver. the 161st boat race is on 11april, next saturday.

when we saw the river on this walk, it was at full tide. the bishop’s palace was right by it and u can have tea there inside the palace, free entry, and can look at the rooms inside and the chapel, which i took some pictures of. it is very pleasant.

the rooms were overheated so we went out and sat at the garden outside. the day was cloudy but comfortable to be outdoors. the building protected the seating area from what wind there was. i have not been to this part of london before. so many people in the shops. even on this day good friday, a public holiday there were so many people about and the shops were open, esp all along the king’s road in chelsea, where the bus runs through on its way to fulham broadway. i thought how nice to see so many people about shopping and/or sitting outside the cafes , even though it was a grey day with no sunlight at all. but people still sat out.
