For a fun day out, Turk Launches river cruises are the perfect way to explore the beautiful stretch of the Thames between Richmond, Kingston and Hampton Court Palace.
Between April and October up to 45 scheduled river trips run daily from piers at Richmond, Kingston and Hampton Court. See timetable

Turk's boats are suitable for all ages, toilets are on board, cyclists and dogs are welcome, disabled access is available at certain piers.
