Woolwich Ferry

The Woolwich Ferry is a free vehicle and pedestrian ferry service that crosses the River Thames in London, England. The ferry runs between Woolwich in the London Borough of Greenwich and North Woolwich in the London Borough of Newham.

The Woolwich Ferry is operated by Transport for London (TfL) and runs every 10-20 minutes, depending on the time of day. The crossing takes around 10 minutes and is a popular way for commuters and tourists to travel across the river.

The Woolwich Ferry can accommodate both vehicles and pedestrians. There is no need to book in advance, and the ferry operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Vehicles are loaded onto the ferry using a ramp, and pedestrians can board using the passenger gangway.

The Woolwich Ferry is a great way to see the River Thames and get a different perspective of London. The crossing offers great views of the city skyline, including the O2 arena and the Emirates Air Line cable car.

Please note that the Woolwich Ferry may not operate during adverse weather conditions, and there may be delays during peak times. However, it remains a popular and convenient way to travel between Woolwich and North Woolwich.
