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.
