Saturday 25 March, Turk Launches river trips are back on the river Thames.
Enjoyed by all age groups from toddlers to the long-time retired, a river cruise has to be one of the most pleasurable ways to experience the beauty of the Thames differently.
Steeped in history with picture postcard scenery, cruise along Turner’s view from Richmond Hill. See pretty boat houses sit alongside eye-catching contemporary modern architecture. Watch Hampton Court Palace come into view as seen from the river.
There is just something astoundingly special about the peace you find when cruising on the water.
With a choice of three destinations, Richmond, Kingston & Hampton Court Palace, each buzzing with cafe’s, bars and restaurants and all along the river towpath where you can enjoy a walk, a Turk Launches river cruise makes for a lovely day out.
River trip season starts Saturday 25 March 2017.
