When operating this ferry is a delightful way to cross the river. Friendly operators, small, a special part of local Twickenham. Worth the one pound passage fare hands down.

We offer walk to Marble Hill park and take the ferry across to Ham It runs regularly in summer months but only at the weekends in the winter. It is a very quick and enjoyable way to reach the other side.

Long may it continue! Have used this for many years as a way to get to Ham from Twickenham and back. Kids love it. It's a cheap and scenic way to get across. Very reliable and always friendly.

Have a lovely walk by Ham House and cross the river to Orleans House and Marble Hill House. It takes next to no time to get across the river. Brilliant. We love it.

We had been at Turner's House in Twickenham and fancied visiting Ham House on the Richmond side of the river. This little ferry was great. £1 a head with a friendly boatman. What is not to like?

Useful service! This is a small business with a small boat. Not your typical ferry. Adds a bit of fun to your day to ferry across river from Twickenham to Ham. The men who run the ferry are helpful and relaxed. You may have to...More

This ferry links Ham house to marble hill park side of the river Thames and costs a £1 for each adult. Amazing way to cross the river and so charming especially on a lovely bright day. Awesome.
