This 17th century historic house and garden is part of the National Trust and sits alongside the River Thames. The impressive building was the vision of the Countess of Dysart, Elizabeth Murray, whose political interest in the English Civil War led to the restoration of the monarchy.

Apparently Ham House is home to some visitors from beyond the grave. Maybe you'll see one on a Christmas ghost tour. Hear some spooky tales, including one about the 9th Earl, who haunts the grounds every Christmas Eve. The tours take place after hours on the 4th, 5th, & 11th December. Tickets are £22.

The tours are only recommended for people over 12, so if you want something the whole family can enjoy, you can go to one of their six family fun events between the 1st-16th December. There will be cookery demonstrations, festive food and drink tastings in the basement.

And especially for the kids, there will be a Christmas trail to follow, which leads to Santa's Grotto. For £3, you can find clues around Ham House Garden which will lead you to Father Christmas, who will give you a gift.
