About the garden

Designed By
Graham Thomas

On the banks of the River Thames, Ham is one of London's secret treasure houses. Gardens surround the house, featuring a lavender parterre, 17th-century woodland wilderness complete with summerhouses, beautifully planted borders and many perfect spots for a picnic. 

The gardens also include a productive kitchen garden, containing many heritage crops. Fruit, vegetables and other produce from the gardens are often featured on the café menu or made available in the onsite shop.

RHS free entry also includes access to the house, subject to opening times.
