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.
