It is connected to Teddington across the river by a footbridge at Teddington Lock. During the summer months, a pedestrian ferry links Ham to Marble Hill House, Twickenham.
Ham is bounded on the west, along the bank of the Thames, by ancient river meadows called Ham Lands.
Ham is bounded to the east by Richmond Park.
