Wonderful house with most of its original furniture , you can access some servants sections , so get a feel for how all classes lived in the house . The gardens are very pretty too !

One of the pleasures of being a member of the National Trust is to visit free, and not have to rush, or do everything. Ham offers so much, the walk from Richmond along the Thames, the interiors, the history of the ownership and the houses place in social history as a Thameside villa, the recreated period gardens, the service quarters...

Went along for an afternoon trip, the actual house is very beautiful, the gardens are ok, quite bland. We had a coffee and snack in the cafe, I asked if my friend could have a china tea cup as opposed to the paper cup offered to which they responded they didn't have any as all were in use, we had...

We should have either been charged less or been told only a handful - three rooms were open. £23 for a very poorly explained tour by a man who insistence on dates was far less interesting than the fascinating story of Elizabeth Tollmarche/ Lauderdale began before the tour commenced. The guides were only interested in pushing you on and really... More

Ham House is well worth a visit. It was only partly open when we visited due to conservation work so we were given a free half hour guided tour ( obviously you have to still pay admission if you are not NT members). The guide was very informative and the house has a fascinating history, some lovely features and beautiful... More

We visited on a cold day. The house itself was quite cold. Interesting history, and some good examples of furniture and furnishing. Pleasant guides, useful children's discovery sheet. Quite poor signposting. We almost missed the basement rooms as the entrance was round the side, but they were warmer. Gardens as one might expect in winter, but some interesting formal layout...

Gardens very limited in winter conditions and the house only open via tours. Beautiful situation on the banks of the Thames.

Ham House is treasure trove of 16th century art and history. During the winter there are only guided tours of parts of the house but it the tour guide gives lots of information and flavour of what can be seen when the full house is open. There is also a cafe and garden to explore. The house is on the... More

We visited with family, who paid full price £11.80 each, only to be told after paying that most of the rooms were closed for refurbishment. We went round the gardens, and the cafe, and saw some rooms in the cellar, but when we went into the house only the hall was open, 26 rooms were not. We had a half... More

Visited here to kill some time before picking up a friend from the nearby Heathrow airport, so did not expect much and as it was winter a lot of rooms were closed. However the staff were really knowledgable and very friendly, we almost had a personalised tour which was very enjoyable! Gardens were nice to visit and we have made... More
