Family-run Richmond boat firm Colliers Launches will soon be cruising again.

Passengers can take a 45-minute circular trip on the River Thames from Richmond Riverside to Teddington Lock and back.

In a Facebook Live broadcast director Danny Collier showed viewers a few of the local landmarks that the boat passes by.

They include the "iconic" Richmond Hill, the Star and Garter, Hammertons Ferry, Ham House, Marble Hill Park, Orleans House Gallery – and individual paddleboarders soaking up the sunny weather.

He also gave a peek inside the lower deck of the Clifton Castle, which is currently closed to passengers due to Covid regulations.

Colliers will be running four trips a day in their Dunkirk little ship Princess Freda. They will start on the hour from 1-4pm, from Monday (April 12).

It costs £10 for adults, £8 for seniors and £6 for children.

You can find Colliers' at their landing stage adjacent to Gaucho, a stone's throw from Richmond Bridge.
