About Ramster Hall And Garden

Ramster Hall and Garden has been in the same family for over 100 years.


The gardens first opened to the public in 1927 as part of the National Garden Scheme. 97s years on, the family is still open for this special day but also shares their much-loved garden, which is now famous for its different varieties of rhododendrons and azaleas, with visitors during spring, summer, and autumn.

With the latest generation of the family being handed the reins in 2005, Ramster Hall is now a popular Surrey venue for events, including weddings, corporate team-building days, conferences and private parties. The Long Hall is the scene of many happy wedding receptions and parties, and The Great Drawing Room is now licensed for Civil Marriages. Ramster Hall and Garden is also used as a film location and for photographic shoots.

Ramster Hall and Garden has also become renowned for hosting theatre and music performances and exhibitions, including the Embroidery and Textiles Art Exhibition and the Surrey Sculpture Society exhibition. Over the last few years, Ramster has held its very own Christmas Market and sells Christmas trees from the Tea House.

The Tea House is also a thrilling business welcoming garden and non-garden visitors through its doors to enjoy its menu, which offers delicious cakes, homemade quiches, soups, and a selection of sandwiches. Ramster also has its own blend of coffee and its very own honey. 


Ramster Hall and Garden's history goes back to the 17th century. Rams Nest, as it was then called, continued a peaceful farming existence with the house being variously modernised and updated over the centuries until, in 1900, it was bought by Sir Harry Waechter, who converted the farmhouse into an Edwardian country house.
