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.

Use the ferry everytime we go to Richmond. Friendly people who despite being busy always have time for you.

What a great way to travel between mansions, arriving by water is the best. Efficient, bargain price, altogether added to a very good day.

Visiting in March we were delighted to find the ferry running between Marble Hill House and Ham House. On our journey across the Thames we were joined by the owner's cat, who seemed to enjoy the ride. The trip is £1 per person.
