Ham House & Garden
Explore a beautiful Restoration Historic House
Ham House was built in 1610 and lavishly remodelled and extended in the 1670s by the Duke and Duchess of Lauderdale, and became a centre of Restoration court life. It is one of the most outstanding survivors of Stuart art and architecture famous for it´s spectacular interiors, which were at the forefront of fashion for that period. The collections of fine 17th and 18th century furniture, textiles and paintings are displayed in 26 rooms. The 17th century formal gardens have gradually been restored, together with a kitchen garden, the oldest free standing Orangery, Still house and an 18th century dairy and ice house. Now it is known as one of the most haunted houses in Britain, so makes a fantastically unique day out in London.
