List of places

Fulwell is located in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames between Twickenham, Teddington and Hampton Hill. The name is first mentioned circa 1450 and probably derives from Full or Foul Well.

The Royal Mail no longer recognises Fulwell as a place name but it survives as part of some street names and in the names of Fulwell railway station, Fulwell Golf Course and Fulwell Garage, as well as Fulwell and Hampton Hill ward (though most of Fulwell is in the adjacent ward of West Twickenham).

From 1913 until his death in 1932 the exiled King Manuel II of Portugal lived at Fulwell Lodge. The lodge was subsequently demolished and redeveloped for housing, but the connection was marked in road names such as Manoel Road, Lisbon Avenue, Augusta Road and Portugal Gardens.

The Anglican parish church of Fulwell is St Michael and St George which in 2006 had been closed for some time and the parish merged with St Peter and St Paul in Teddington.
