Ham House and Garden
A unique 17th-century treasure trove
Explore the house, gardens and wider estate
Extensive formal gardens, statuesque borders, a wilderness area and productive kitchen garden have been lovingly re-created.
Nestled on the banks of the River Thames, Ham House was the 17th century creation of the tenacious Duchess of Lauderdale and her husband the Duke – together they transformed Ham into one of the grandest Stuart houses in England. Soak up the atmosphere as you discover each ornately decorated room in turn.
See Ham House in a new light this winter. Enjoy a simple self-guided stroll along winding paths in the gardens or head out into our neighbouring estate, river paths and grand avenues to take in ancient protected views.
