MADE IN FULHAM

Coffee - Cup Of Espresso

Despite the title, it’s common knowledge that several of the stars of Made in Chelsea live – or have lived - just down the road in Fulham and Parsons Green. In fact, the ‘boys house’ where Oliver Proudlock, Francis Bolle and Jamie Lang used to live is actually right next to Parsons Green tube station. So what are the highlights of this upmarket west London neighbourhood and where might you spot some MIC stars off camera?

Megan’s

This mini-chain has two branches in the Fulham area – one on New King’s Road and one by Parsons Green. Megan’s started life as an antiques shop/café on New King’s Road, owned by the eponymous Megan. It became famous for its stunning indoor garden and relaxed approach to dining. Even though the brand has now expanded, all locations are still notoriously pretty: full of fairy lights, floral arrangements and baby blues. Once you’ve taken a few snaps for your Instagram stories, tuck into their Middle Eastern themed menu which features the likes of shakshuka, “posh” kebabs and enormous salad bowls. Oh and feel free to bring your dog too because Megan’s is famously dog friendly.

Aragon House

Aragon House is a grand, Grade II listed Regency building on the edge of Parsons Green. It had been closed for a number of years before being given a new lease of life as a ‘pub with rooms’. Today it’s one of Fulham’s most stylish spaces, with a menu full of solid culinary classics from roast chicken supreme to mojitos and negronis. There’s also a hidden walled garden at the back which is a great spot to enjoy an Aperol spritz on a sunny day. And if you’re enjoying yourself so much that you don’t want to leave, there are 15 boutique-style rooms for you to stay in overnight. Fun history fact: Aragon House used to be the site of a dower house belonging to Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII’s first wife.
