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?

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.

It's a lovely way to cross the river to get to Ham House. The young blond guy (who has lovely legs!) saved me as I slipped disembarking. We'll be back.

At the bottom of Marble Hill Park in Twickenham is the River Thames. On the opposite bank, dark and brooding, and cloaked in an astonishing history, is Ham House, which can be found reviewed many times on here. The perfect way to visit Ham House...More

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