Riverboat Trip from Kingston to Richmond

The group of about 20 Members and their partners met at Turks Pier, Kingston at midday and joined other day trippers. The trip took an hour to Turks Pier at Richmond, near the White Cross.

Lunch was at the Jackson & Ryes American style restaurant. Afterwards there was the opportunity to amble through the Richmond Town Centre and stop for a beer at one of the hostelries before returning to Kingston.

As the Thames was at high tide, we needed to rejoin the boat on the other side, upstream, of Richmond Bridge.
