Parham is a village and civil parish in the Suffolk Coastal district of Suffolk in eastern England. Located seven miles north of Woodbridge, in 2005 it had a population of 300, reducing to 263 at the 2011 Census.

The flint-built parish church of St Mary, though restored in 1886, dates from the late 14th Century and was likely built for William de Ufford. The Rood screen is 15th Century.[2] The aviator Ray Hanna is buried in the churchyard.

Parham Airfield Museum is located nearby.

Parham railway station, on the Framlingham Branch, was shut to passenger traffic in November 1952.
