let's cross our fingers for a sunny summer Sunday and take a boat trip to Hampton Court and back. This event has formed out as a popular tradition repeating already for three years.
We will meet in front of The White Cross Pub in Richmond where the St Helena Pier is. Be there at 10.45!
The boat schedule:
Richmond - Hampton Court 11.00
Hampton Court - Richmond 14.35
I will send an email for everyone on previous evening with my mobile number and how to recognise me.
During the cruise you will see spectacular scenes of Richmond, Teddington and Kingston before arriving to Hampton Court which has beautiful surroundings with royal palace, palace garden and riverside pubs.
We might have to change vessel in Kingston but all essential information will be told on the boat.
We will have about three hours to spend in Hampton Court so you can get to know the palace, have a picnic outside or explore the nice pubs on the river side. Palace round will take couple of hours if you want to see the whole of it. If the weather is warm and sunny I will take a picnic basket with me and just enjoy the day out in palace garden.
Return ticket Richmond - Hampton Court costs £9.50. There is toilets and a bar onboard. You can pay in cash or card onboard.
When we have returned to Richmond it would be nice to have a Sunday lunch together in some of the Richmond riverside pubs if you wish to. We can plan more when we are together onboard. The White Cross has very good food but unfortunately they don't take table reservations so we just have to go in and try to grab a table.
See you there!
