Trip Advisor Review Kingston to Hampton Court Palace August 2016
Lovely trip on a sunny afternoon for a picnic in Bushy Park and visit to Hampton Court Palace. Frequent and efficient service and we were able to return when we were ready as there are lots of times to choose from. The cruise certainly beat sitting in the traffic and our teenagers were happy to sit on deck and watch the world go by!
