New this summer at Ham House

Girl picking fruit in the Family Picking Garden

Ham House's new garden action area aims to provide everybody with hands-on fun, from harvesting in our Family Picking Garden, to seeing if your feet touch the ground as you jump the Thames via our river logs. Play traditional games and build a den.

Ham House's new garden action area invites everybody to join in.  Head round to the Outer Courtyard and discover a variety of fun for the whole family!
 
The area aims to provide everybody with hands-on fun, from pulling a carrot or tasting a raspberry in our Family Picking Garden, to seeing if your feet touch the ground as you jump the Thames from Ham to Big Ben via our winding river logs in our new natural play area.
 
Across the path, play traditional games like quoits and noughts and crosses, or build your own stick house or palace and tick den building off your 50 things to do before you're 11¾. With picnic seating, lunches, ice cream and cream teas available, we are catering for everyone, in sun and shade.
