Beaufort House is believed to be the Dower House for nearby Ham House as it was built in 1697, on the site of an earlier Tudor building and stands back just off Ham Street.
Not only is Johnny Van Haeften the leading art dealer in Dutch old masters he also has a large collection of Antarctic memorabilia including the last sledge in private hands from Shackleton’s 1907 Nimrod Expedition.
Guests will be welcomed with a glass of Champagne and there will be a buffet lunch.
He also has a collection of Royal memorabilia and letters from such famous names as Horatio Nelson.
I suggest if you wish to visit Ham House that you do this after the visit to Beaufort House.
The tickets for this event are limited, therefore if you are a joint member you can apply for two tickets and if you are a single member then one ticket.
