Project description

Fulham Palace is a successful visitor attraction in West London. It is a Grade 1 listed complex of buildings and historic gardens. CCN worked with the highly committed Trustee team and with the staff to evaluate the current operation, allow benchmarking against other similar attractions in the London area thus allowing an evaluation of performance and identifying areas for improvement.

Consulting with staff and Trustees we were able to steer discussions to consider sustainability options and clarify the vision for the site for the next 10 years and develop a unique proposition for Fulham Palace. We examined a number of different options for space use and how this might change the visitor experience and introduce new income streams. We also helped Trustees to understand future challenges for governance and succession planning. We helped Trustees define what future success looks like and next steps to realising their vision.
