The stretch of the Thames from Twickenham Bridge to Petersham and Ham is one of the prettiest in London. The action is mostly around Richmond Bridge , built in 1777 and London’s oldest surviving crossing, only widened for traffic in 1937. The lovely walk to Petersham can be crowded in nice weather; best to cut across Petersham Meadows and continue to Richmond Park for peace and quiet. There are several companies near Richmond Bridge, including Richmond Boat Hire , that offer skiff hire (adult/child £5/2.50 per hour, £15/7.50 per day).
