A lovely ride for an autumn morning! We will take quieter roads from Ealing, down to Chiswick Bridge and cross the river to Mortlake. We might pause to pay a brief visit to the churchyard where we can see the distinctive, Arabic-style mausoleum of Sir Richard Burton https://www.stmarymags.org.uk/tomb-of-sir-richard-burton/. Then we ride through Barnes and join the riverside path which we follow to Putney, enjoying the changing colours of the trees. Crossing back over the river, we reach our destination: the historic Fulham Palace, once the home of the Bishop of London, and now offering beautifully restored gardens, a small museum, and an elegant café http://www.fulhampalace.org/palace/. Our homeward ride takes us through the neighbouring Bishop’s Park which offers a relaxing green space on the riverside, then into the quiet roads of Fulham and back to Ealing via Ravenscourt Park and Acton.
