“his rare and atmospheric 17th-century house sits on the banks of the River Thames in Richmond. It is the creation of the tenacious Duchess of Lauderdale and her husband, the Duke, who together transformed Ham into one of the grandest Stuart houses in England. Ham House is internationally recognised for its superb collection of paintings, furniture and textiles, largely acquired 400 years ago. Some of our unique objects include a rare Chinese teapot, said to have been used by the Duchess herself, and the exotic ivory cabinet. The house is reputed to be one of the most haunted in Britain. Some visitors have reported the ghostly aroma of the sweet Virginia pipe tobacco that the Duke smoked after meals in the dining room. Visit the hands on below stairs room; including the bathroom, complete with a wooden bathtub and bed, illustrates how baths were taken before washing became an everyday event. Selected rooms in the house are open by guided tour during the winter months, with tickets on a first come first served basis. Outside, the open and formal restored 17th-century gardens surround the house. It includes a productive kitchen garden containing many heritage crops, the maze-like ‘Wilderness’, complete with summerhouses, and many beautiful spots perfect for a picnic. The Orangery café set in the kitchen garden serves light lunches and teas. The café is set in one of the first examples of an Orangery, however it was not an ideal building for plants to grow as the windows are small and very little light could reach the orange and lemon trees.”

Profoundly historic, the House holds a wealth of art within its grand classical interiors, while the Park and Gardens feel like deep countryside, although barely nine miles from Charing Cross. ”

“Southside House was built in 1687 for the Pennington family in the Dutch baroque style. Of the many artifacts on display, of particular interest is the dressing case that belonged to Anne Boleyn prior to her execution. Other interior architectural highlights include the entrance hall with its checkerboard floor, the staircase hall with its ornate railings and wall decorations, and the main dining room with its spectacular chandelier. The gardens of Southside House are a pleasant spot and are immaculately cared for. Guided tours are available, as are musical and other cultural activities.”

Public Art
“I don’t think I have ever walked by these red phone boxes having the domino effect and not seen people taking photos on them. Kingston has a great riverside but these phone boxes are also a great tourist attraction. Vibrant and cool, right there in the middle of Kingston town centre, great addition to the grey dreariness of every day buildings.”
