One of a series of grand houses and palaces alongside the River Thames, Ham House and Garden impressed in its day and continues to do so today. Rich in history and atmosphere, it is mainly the vision of Elizabeth Murray, Countess of Dysart, who was deeply embroiled in the politics of the English Civil War and subsequent restoration of the monarchy. Through the centuries, Ham has survived war, fashion and neglect to retain a uniquely mysterious aura. Some visitors even claim that it is haunted by the ghosts of its past residents. Today Ham House and Garden stand as one of Europe's greatest 17th century houses.
