Details

One of London’s best kept secrets, this atmospheric Stuart mansion nestles on the banks of leafy Richmond-upon-Thames. It has remained virtually unchanged for 400 years and is internationally recognised for its superb collection of textiles, furniture and art which have remained in the house for centuries. Largely the vision of Elizabeth Murray, Countess of Dysart, who was deeply embroiled in the politics of the English Civil War and subsequent restoration of the monarchy, Ham House and Garden is an unusually complete survival of the 17th century. It is reputed to be one of the most haunted houses in Britain.

Exploring:

• Outstanding collection of furniture and textiles
• Produce from our kitchen garden in the Orangery Café
• Family house and garden trails
• Hands-on servants' area in our basement
• Downloadable cycle trail and walks to Ham
• Ham's role in film and television productions

Eating and shopping: Orangery café serving dishes made using kitchen garden produce and homemade cakes.

Making the most of your day: free garden tours on some days, please check with property. Discovery room with interactive family activities. Family garden trails and explorer pack. Wide-ranging programme of events throughout the year.
