Visiting Ham House with children

Visitors in the Cherry Garden at Ham House and Garden, Surrey

A day out at Ham House is fun for all the family. We’ll help you keep your brood entertained and who knows, we may even find the inner child in you too.

For all the family

Ham is a special place for families and there's always something to explore. There are house and garden trails to enjoy, and free family art activities.
Throughout the year, we have lots of family friendly events, from spooky Hallowe'en half term fun to visiting Father Christmas in his grotto.
