About the garden
Found on the banks of the River Thames, Ham is one of London’s secret treasure houses with garden and house designed together: imaginatively re-created over the past 40 years. With formal gardens that include the Cherry Garden parterre and long borders, a 17th-century woodland wilderness complete with summer houses and 16 compartments and a large, productive walled kitchen garden, Ham’s gardens are continually being developed.
2018 brings a continued focus on a historic spring bulb display and an enlarged Kitchen Garden complete with historic crops and planting styles. Summer sees the garden team highlighting the role of women gardeners in productive gardens throughout history.
Autumn is spent harvesting vegetable and fruit bounty - come and try our seasonal dishes in the Orangery Café, pick your own from our family tasting garden and take home a Ham Vegetable bag. In winter, visitors come to see a large collection of frosted topiary and clipped hedges, with further symmetry of domed lavender and santolina.
