Free Ham

This weekend, the stately and beautiful Ham House in Richmond throws open its doors for free, for its annual community day. The Thames-side, 17th-century building is staggeringly beautiful, and its gardens well worth a wander. Little visitors may be more inclined to explore the building if you tell them about the many ghosts that wander around its hallways and passages. There’s also a kids trail with prizes to follow (£2). Free. Sunday 11am-4.30pm. More here
