The Garden at Ham House and Garden
Ham House’s atmospheric 17th century walled garden is a celebration of the past, with a modern sensibility. Extensive formal gardens, statuesque borders, a wilderness area and productive kitchen garden have been lovingly re-created. At the same time, our planting is constantly evolving to keep the garden’s original spirit alive. We use organic principles to encourage wildlife and plants to thrive in a place that everyone can enjoy.
What's on for garden lovers?
Ham House's 17th century walled kitchen garden is stunning all year round. Historically it would have grown fruit and vegetables to feed the whole household. Today organic principles encourage nature to thrive too. Hear how in this behind the scenes tour.
