Welcome Aboard

Kingston & Richmond

Welcome to Turk Launches – a 310 year old, family run, Thames river boat company.  Each year we carry 1000’s of passengers to explore the stunning stretch of the river Thames  between Kingston and Richmond. Unfortunately due to the current climate and guidelines we will not be operating Hampton Court Pier for our everyday trips.

We are easy to get to with each of our piers near to public transport – tube, train, bus.

Daily Boat Trip Timetable

Hourly river trips lasting 40 minutes, departing from Kingston on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. And from Richmond on Friday and Saturday. Click below to get started.
