Parham has been a well-loved family home since its foundation stone was laid in 1577. Its beauty and peace have changed little over the centuries.

Set within an ancient deer park below the South Downs, Parham is one of the country’s finest Elizabethan Houses, complete with a Great Hall and Long Gallery.

Discover a rare and precious collection of paintings, furniture, needlework and antiquities.

The award-winning gardens consist of beautiful Pleasure Grounds and a four-acre Walled Garden. There are stunning herbaceous borders, a 1920s greenhouse, vegetable garden, orchard and Wendy House. Enjoy walks around the Pleasure Grounds and lake and explore the variety of fascinating wildlife. The Park is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Parham is in the Top Twenty in 'England's 1000 Best Houses' by Simon Jenkins.

Restaurant: Licensed, light lunches, cakes and cream teas. Groups and Guided Tours: By arrangement. Suitability for Dogs: In grounds, on leads. Disabled access to Gardens and ground floor of the House.
