I was visiting London from NYC and did a tour of Fullers. The tour guide Colin I believe his name, was knowledgeable, entertaining, and passionate about his job and the company he worked for. Highly recommend.

There will be on street parking either just off the A316 or behind the brewery on the banks of the Thames. I suspect it's metered so you'll have to pay a few pounds. Good luck.
