About the garden

Owned by
National Trust

The 17th-century gardens at Ham House have been restored to their former glory. With formal gardens, a walled kitchen garden and space to retreat to come and relax in an environment filled with plants from the time of King Charles II. The kitchen garden has been at Ham since at least 1653 and is currently one of the most productive walled kitchen gardens in London.

The Wilderness was part of the original 17th century garden and was a place to think and read.  It was also a space that demonstrated an ability to control nature, something that was a theme in 17th century garden design.  Explore all of the different compartments with their wild flowers and summer houses.
