Albeit just a short journey by car, due to the bends of the river Thames, it takes considerably longer to cruise the stretch between Putney and Hampton Court Palace. Hence, although some of the 'London Boats' can cruise this route (tides pending), substantial running costs are usually levied. Therefore, for those wishing to embark/disembark along this picturesque section of the Thames, we recommend the vessels below as they predominantly serve this part of the river and are thus, best suited....and more kind to your purse strings. Timings and tides pending, these vessels can also cruise down river to central London.
