Fulham Road is a street in London, England, which comprises the A304 and part of the A308.


Fulham Road runs from the A219 in the centre of Fulham, in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, through Chelsea to Brompton Road Knightsbridge which continues to the A4 in Brompton, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is designated the A304 as far as its junction with the A308 road at Gunter Grove, where the A308 then forms the eastern section of the street.

Fulham Road runs parallel to the King's Road, going west from the area called Brompton Cross. There are numerous antique dealers and specialist interior furnishing stores which help to give Fulham Road a rather sedate atmosphere. The nearest tube station is at South Kensington.
