Special Behind the Scenes Visit to Ham House

Ham House is justly celebrated for the remarkable survival of its seventeenth-century interiors, decorated with superb textiles and furniture. These interiors were created firstly by William Murray in the 1630s and then by his daughter and her husband, the Duke and Duchess of Lauderdale in the 1670s. The preservation of the house stimulated pioneering research into the seventeenth-century interior in the 1970s though more recently the National Trust has paid equal attention to the alterations made in the mid-eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries by the Tollemache family.
