Ham common is a large conservation area managed by the borough of Richmond council. It is situated between kingston and Richmond and is a large green and wooded area. Good place to walk your dog and is well used on clear days.

Ham Common is situated on the borders of Richmond and Kingston. A nice green common on one side with woods on the other. This is an upmarket area but this attraction was a pleasant surprise.

We parked beside the common and had our picnic despite the damp day. The common is well used by the friendly locals who directed us towards Ham House. A long walk from there but worth it to see the pretty village houses.
