On the River in Richmond upon Thames

River Thames

The River Thames runs through the heart of the Richmond borough for over 10 miles linking Hampton Court Palace, Teddington Lock, Richmond town centre and Kew Gardens with central London.

Travelling by river is a great way to see many of the attractions in the area from a different perspective, including Marble Hill House, Ham House and Hampton Court Palace.
