12 dogs of Christmas at Ham House

Enjoy our 12 dogs of Christmas event at Ham this festive season

Our wonderful Twelve Dogs of Christmas event is back from the 26 December – 6 January and we can’t wait to see which wagging tails will be the first to come through our gates each day.

Twelve Dogs of Christmas

‘On the first day of Christmas my owner gave to me... a day out and a prezzie!’

Our wonderful Twelve Dogs of Christmas event is back starting from the 26 December – 6 January and we can’t wait to see which wagging tails will be the first to come through our gates each day. The first dog to visit Ham House and Garden each day will be announced as one of the ‘Twelve Dogs of Christmas’, receive a very tasty doggy Christmas pudding and will go up on our famous ‘InstaHam’ board, which has become somewhat of a coveted position since we started the event last year. So come along and spoil your four legged family members this Christmas with an event created especially for them.

The gates will open at 10am each morning, but we do recommend that you don’t leave it too late as competition for top spot was tough last year. Even if you don’t end up being our first dog of the day, every dog that comes to see us will be given a free treat and lots of fuss to keep those tails wagging.

If you can’t make it on any of these days, then no need to worry as Ham House and Garden has permanently opened its gates to all dogs on short leads to enjoy a leisurely walk through our Garden and relax at our Orangery Café all year round.
