We love travelling down the Thames by boat - so much to see - and with a Rover ticket you can get on and off as often as you like. Good value and much nicer than travelling on the tube!

I believe the scheduled time from Kew to Westminster is just over two hours but that schedule is only an estimate. They may be delayed due to other shipping.

The one way fare from Kew to Westminster was 13 GBP per person. You can buy your tickets at a booth at the Kew stop.

Yes they do but I would pay on the day at the booth at Westminster Station on the river as you can choose a nice day.
