Just the place for a quiet stroll but the riverside walk is monopolized by dog walkers so it's better to take one of the other paths.

Just off the main town, easy to find. Nice walk around the outside with a half-way cut through. Lots of natural wildlife, next the the river and worth a wander.

Took the grandchildren for a wander along the riverbank on the Avon side of the Ham with the Severn a little further away. A very pleasant 3 hour walk on the banks of both rivers proved worthwhile. Locks and Weirs and a lovely area to...More

This is a wonderful piece of land, made an island by the rivers SEVERN and Avon. It’s about 3 miles all the way round in an easy walk, with a number of different routes that can make it a shorter walk, but all are great....More

My dog loves exploring around here and it’s really easy to get to by car on a chilled Sunday afternoon in the sun. Lovely areas for picnics & kids to play too.

Lots of natural space to walk and enjoy the views reaching miles on a good clear day. It's reached via bridges from the town

Happy memories of the Ham as my husbands Father was brought up there and told us stories of swimming in the Ham which is now not allowed.

As it was March when we visited then the area is typically dormant but nice to see the Avon alongside. This place will be alive come the Spring and Summer months..

There is a car park close by at the Victoria gardens around 100 yards from the Abbey. Parking was reasonably priced for a short stay.

The currents in the Severn can be quite strong so please use caution if letting your dog swim. Dogs can get into the river in many places but there’s a ‘beach’ about 100 yards clockwise from the weir which is probably the... More
