West London Wine School

West London Wine School hosts all of their London based wine tastings and courses in ‘The Wine Cellars’ at the Big Yellow storage company in Fulham, London. At first thought you may be thinking how unusual the venue is, however think again…

‘The Wine Cellars’ – Big Yellow Fulham

London is a busy and crowded city with little room for manoeuvre and even less room for storage. Wine enthusiasts and aficionados alike have struggled to store their fine wine and often have to settle for the garage or under the staircase. These scenarios can be the touch of death to a wine in maturation and have often plighted the small-time wine hoarders who do not have access to a cellar. Enter ‘The Wine Cellars’ situated underground the Big Yellow Storage in Fulham. Here lies the UK’s first purpose-built wine self storage facility, containing 1,200 temperature and humidity controlled cellars spread across four floors.

The facility, placed next to Chelsea’s Harbour Club, is aimed at both individual wine collectors and businesses that require constant access to their wine collections. This wise move has been welcomed by the press with open arms and even TV personality Oz Clarke was given the honours of opening the cellars in March 2008.

How to find ‘The Wine Cellars’:

  • London Overground operates the closest station, Imperial Wharf, a 7-8 minute walk away
  • Wandsworth Town (South West Trains) a 10-12 minutes walk away
  • Fulham Broadway is the closest underground station at 15-20 minutes walk away (bus advisable – or change at West Brompton and take the orange Overground/Southern to Imperial Wharf)
  • Two bus routes (391 Richmond to Sands End and C3 Earl’s Court to Clapham Junction) run along the building with a number of other routes on Wandsworth Bridge Road (295, 28 and 424) only 3 minutes walk away.

Important Additional Information

The venue is underneath the Big Yellow Storage Company on Townmead Road in Fulham (SW6 2ST) and the gates for the main facility close between 6-7pm, therefore a security guard gives West London Wine School members access between 6-7:30pm. If the outside gate is closed use the ‘Please call here for assistance’ button and the guard will open the gates. He will then show you down to the Wine Cellars via the lifts (Basement Floor).
