Londons Finest Value Excursion
From the heart of London, you follow the Royal Barge Route of King Henry VIII and other British monarchs.
Passing the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, and historical Richmond, and through the locks as the river winds and twists to the magnificent Royal Palace of Hampton Court, which has stood on the banks of the river for more than 500 years.
So much of London’s history can be seen along the route.

The Henley is an original Thames Steamer launched for the first time in 1896
Princess Freda was built in 1926 by T.C. Letcher on the Isle of Wight, and has been restored to a particularly high standard.
