This picturesque little park stretches along the banks of the Thames from Putney Bridge to Fulham FC´s Craven Cottage ground. As well as containing historic Fulham Palace in its grounds, the park has 15 tennis courts, six of which are floodlit, a bowling green, miniature lake, and a popular children's play area. Although small in size, the park remains a favorite with west London residents. The park is the perfect vantage point to view the initial stage of the race, but only if you are lucky enough to be situated right up against the handrail. The park's only other claim to fame came when the film The Omen, starring Gregory Peck, had a scene shot in the park in which a priest meets with a rather grisly end.
