Ham House

Ham Street
TW10 7RS

Ham House is unique in Europe as the most complete survival of 17th century power and fashion. Built in 1610, it was enlarged during the 1670s when it was at the heart of Restoration court life and intrigue. The garden is one of the few formal gardens to have survived the English Landscape Movement in the 18th-century. An important and influential restoration programme was begun in 1973 and an exhibition about this with a video of the history of the house is on show in the 18th-century dairy. This property belongs to the National Trust.
