In addition to the numerous rail services, there is an extensive bus network across the borough and and during the summer months a regular boat service running between Richmond and Hampton Court.

Hammerton's Ferry - Marble Hill Park to Ham House Gerry serviceOne of the borough's principal features is its location on both banks of the River Thames though crossing the river can be problematic!

There are road bridges at Hammersmith, Chiswick, Kew, Richmond, Kingston and Hampton Court though these often become congested at peak times.  Pedestrians and cyclists are also able to cross via footbridge at Teddington Lock and Barnes railway bridge. There is also Hammerton's ferry, a twickenham ferry service which operates between Ham House and Marble Hill Park during the summer months.

When there are events at Twickenham stadium there are parking restrictions in place around the stadium. Please see our map for details of the restricted parking zone limits.
