Fulham Palace Garden Centre remains closed six months on

Fulham Palace Garden Centre remains empty six months after the Prince's Trust closed it and following unsuccessful attempts to lease the site to Pets at Home.

A Prince’s Trust representative said: "We are still exploring options for the future of the garden centre site and are receiving interest from potential buyers and tenants."

As a charity, The Prince’s Trust closed the garden centre because it "is not a core part of The Trust’s operations and, with this in mind, we are looking at leasing the site as this will be the best way to raise funds in support of more young people".

The Trust bought two-thirds of the lease for Fulham Palace Garden Centre from the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham for more than £500,000 last year.

The charity took over from previous owner Fairbridge Trust in 2011.
