Ham House, set on the banks of the river Thames near Richmond, is perhaps the most remarkable Stuart House in the country. Built in 1610 and enlarged in the 1670s by the influential Duke and Duchess of Lauderdale, Ham was a centre for court intrigue throughout most of the 17th century. In its time, the house was at the forefront of fashion and still retains much of the original interior decoration from that period, including outstanding collections of furniture, textiles and paintings shown in 26 rooms.

The formal gardens are significant for their survival within the area known as the cradle of the English Landscape Movement.
