Ham House is owned by the National Trust and if you don`t belong like we do then it is really worth while. Ham House has a fantastic position near to the Thames. Very informative guides inside the house and interesting gardens to explore. A very pleasant tea room overlooking the gardens.

Use Sat Nav to find it and park in the car park by the river except during spring and autumn high tides. Alternatively walk from Richmond along the river, again avoiding high tides when the tow path my be flooded. (The adventurous can walk from Pembroke Lodge down the hill but check the map first). We have visited many times mainly to walk, sit in the pleasant but not extensive gardens and have coffee on the patio outside the cafe. Like most National Trust cafes the food is unexciting. We occasionally go into the house but I confess to remembering little of it. I strongly advise checking opening times before going as occasionally we have turned up to find it closed.

Maybe it was the rain that put me off, Im not sure. It really was a very dark and dingy house. The staff were not particularly friendly which is so unlike NT properties. One guide scared my daughter with Ghost Stories when i distinctly asked her not to. The gardens are ok but the cafe was poor. The shop was well laid out but not a member of staff to be seen. Not that its that type of place but it would be a shoplifters paradise!
