Learning at Ham House

Child looking at copper pans in the Kitchen at Ham House and Garden, Surrey

Transport your class back to times past – discover life as a servant, what it would have been like to go to school as a Victorian or why not experience 17th century life in our below stairs room? We’ll ensure that you and your class have a memorable day reliving Ham House’s history.

School visits

 
Ham House was built in 1610 and one family lived in the house for over 300 years. We offer workshops centred around two important periods of Ham's history - the Stuarts and the Victorians.
 
The workshops are designed to accommodate Year 1 to Year 6, with classes of up to 30 children.
 

Stuart workshop

 
Explore our below stairs rooms and find out about a servant's life in Stuart times, with a chance to cook in the kitchen. Then explore above stairs, dressed in 17th century courtly attire.
 

Victorian workshop

 
Discover life as a Victorian housekeeper. Experience the workings of a Victorian schoolroom in a large house and learn how this is different from schools today.
