I live really near Ham House, but the last time I went was about seven years ago because we had to write an essay about it for school. It was built in 1610 and it’s very fancypants and elaborate inside (though as far as grand buildings of the 17th century go, I’m much more of a Versailles girl) so I thought I’d have a walk around. It’s crap that you can’t take photos inside, what’s that about? I did take lots of pictures of the grounds though, the gardens are beautiful.
Next on the agenda: Hampton Court Palace!
