Boat Trips River Thames – Kingston, Richmond, Hampton Court
From March to September up to 45 scheduled River Thames boat trips run daily on the scenic Thames between Richmond, Kingston and Hampton Court.

Cosmopolitan riversides bustling with a superb choice of bars and restaurants nestle alongside Tudor history (Hampton Court Palace), Turner’s landscapes (view of the Thames from Richmond Hill) important WWII settings (Teddington Lock) and where rock royalty such as the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and Eric Clapton recorded and resided (Eel Pie Island).
