Set in the heart of an ancient deer park below the South Downs, Parham House and Gardens offers an unforgettable day out.
One of the country’s finest Elizabethan Houses, its tranquillity and timeless beauty have changed little over the centuries. The main rooms of the House are the Great Hall, Great Chamber and Long Gallery, which contain an outstanding collection of pictures, furniture and needlework.
Parham’s magnificent gardens are a series of interlocking pictures, woven into each other with a tapestry-like effect, designed to excite for a long season, peaking in summer and late autumn.
The beautiful four-acre eighteenth century Walled Garden includes a vegetable garden, orchard and wonderful 1920’s Wendy house. Its opulent mixed borders and abundant glasshouse provide flowers and plants to decorate every room in the House, an old Parham tradition. The adjoining Pleasure Grounds include a lake, many specimen trees and a brick and turf maze.
Parham House & Gardens hosts various special events throughout the year including their popular Needlework Display, please visit the website for more information.
