Christmas at Ham House

The Inner Hall Grotto

Until 3 Jan visit Ham House to see how the Stuarts celebrated Christmas. We will have lots of natural greenery decorating the house, with music, food and of course sparkling trees.

Ham House will be decorated for Christmas unti 3 Jan 

This year Ham will travel back in time to a seventeenth century Stuart Christmas. Ham will celebrate the end of Cromwell’s tough rule, when music, food, decorations and joy returned to England.  

Expect an abundance of natural green wreaths, swags and garlands, draped over banisters, mantelpieces and windowsills.

There will of course be a sparkling Christmas tree adorning the house, bursting with presents beneath it.

There will be present shaped information boards around the house to tell you a little bit more about this period in time, and how Ham's residents, The Lauderdales, celebrated Christmas in lavish fashion. 

There will be plenty of photo ops with Christmas trees inside the house for the first time. So make sure you share your photos with us on twitter or Instagram @HamHouseNT.
