Ham House @ Richmond, London, UK * テムズ沿いにある、美しい17世紀のお屋敷

About half an hour walk from Richmond station, along the Thames, Ham House stands as if nothing has changed from 17th century.


Very quiet, never too busy with tourists, you can take time enjoying the views of a gorgeous symmetrical building as well as the classic English garden.


Inside, the house preserves how the rooms looked like before, with many small art-piece collections and beautiful antique furniture.


Very friendly National Trust staff explained to us what each room was for and what was significant about them.

My favourite room was definitely the library. I almost wanted to recreate this room in our flat!


Please make sure to visit the kitchen and bathroom in the basement. They looked very different from the other gorgeous rooms upstairs, but helped me understand the lifestyle of people around that time.


Since I came to London, I have visited so many stately homes across the UK, including the Highclere Castle featured in Downton Abbey series and famouse Buckingham Palace, but I would say Ham House is my most favourite. So many films and TV series have been filmed there. After the visits, I can easily see why.


Kitchen garden and Orangery serves food for tourists.
Guided tour for the garden was very good and in depth, highly recommended.
