Kingston upon Thames Transportation: 9 reviews and 7 photos


If you want to go to Hampton Court Palace from Kingston in the summer, the nicest way to travel is by boat, just like Henry the Eighth would have! You have to walk a little way along the river towards Surbiton to catch the boat, which will drop you off by the bridge leading to the palace.

It's a lovely journey, as you travel alongside the palace's grounds most of the way, often accompanied by swans, and see the decorative Royal gates as you arrive.

The boats leave every twenty to thirty minutes during the day, but stop quite early in the evening, so if you want to return later in the evening you can buy a single ticket for the boat and then take the bus back to Kingston.

a single ticket is 3.50 and a return is 5
