The Local Area Guide to living in Ham

A leafy and highly desirable suburb in southwest London, Ham enjoys a tranquil, almost rural setting flanked by the River Thames and buttercup-laden meadows. There is a unique blend of architecture within Ham, including elegant Georgian and Victorian villas as well as retro estate housing from the 1950s. The suburb is built up around the Ham Common, which features a pond, woodland and cricket pitch. From here, a path leads pedestrians to National Trust-protected Ham House.

Ham's main street boasts a selection of pubs, tea shops and retail outlets, and further amenities are located nearby in Richmond and Kingston upon Thames. There are also four churches located within Ham, along with Victorian period buildings, including the Cassel Hospital and Latchmere House. Between the Ham Common, River Thames, Ham Lands and Richmond Park all in the area, there's no shortage of green spaces to stroll, cycle, or simply relax.

Information about the local residents

Ham is primarily a residential area, with most residents commuting into other areas for work. At the time of the 2011 Census, there were 10,317 residents within Ham, comprising 4,174 households in total. Nearly a third of the properties in Ham are owned outright, with 29 per cent owned with a loan. This small community can feel more like a village than a city suburb, with its independent shops and friendly atmosphere. There is a sizeable German population within Ham, drawn to the area due to the German School of London.

Nearby Schools

The quality and variety of schools within Ham is generally excellent, as this is an affluent area popular with families. At the primary level, pupils may attend St Richard's CofE, St Agatha's RC or The Russell, all of which have achieved a 'Good' rating from Ofsted. Fern Hill and Latchmere School are rated 'Outstanding.'

At the secondary level, both The Tiffin Girls' School in Kingston and Grey Court are considered 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. Students at Tiffin in particular have historically received outstanding GCSE results, making it a prestigious and competitive option. GCSE results are also well above average and continue to improve at Grey Court Secondary School in Ham, with the school achieving 'Outstanding' marks in all areas in the latest glowing Ofsted report. Alternately, students may attend the German School London, which is housed in the Grade 2 listed Douglas House next to the Ham Polo Club. The German School provides accommodation for students from the pre-school to secondary levels.

Getting Around

Although Ham is part of Greater London, the nearest tube and rail station is in neighbouring Richmond. From there you can take the rail or District line into central London. Central Ham is compact and walkable, with no shortage of walking trails and pretty green spaces to explore. It's possible to walk over to Richmond, or take the 65 or 371 bus route to the nearest station. The 91 and K5 bus routes link Ham with Kingston upon Thames, where there is another rail station as well. From Kingston, there are eight trains per hour to London's Waterloo Station during peak travel times. Motorists can also drive over to Kingston, where it's possible to hop on the A3 motorway. However, due to congestion, public transport is often preferable within the Greater London area.

Local Shops

There are two main clusters of shops within Ham, including a shopping area near the Ham Common and a smattering of cafes and shops on Ham Street. This includes the highly regarded M&J Hardware store, greengrocers, German bakeries, and a fine wine shop.

Petersham Nurseries Café is a popular spot for a light lunch or special occasion, providing upscale European fare in a botanical setting overlooking the pastoral Petersham Meadows. Other hotspots in the area include The Dysart and the Hansel and Pretzel German Delicatessen. Richmond and Kingston are located a stone's throw away, offering further shopping and dining outlets for locals.
