Prehistoric river crossing. Instead of a bridge or a tunnel we wait one hour for a 5 minute crossing and the operator always manages to make sure there is only one boat wirking at busy times

The weather was wonderful for the time of visiting so we took a voyage on the Woolwich Ferry ⛴. We boarded and waited for the ferry to fill up with its traffic for the essential journey to the other side of the River Thames. As you glide the short way you get a wonderful view of the Thames Barrier with the skyline of Canary Wharf in the background see my picture below. Then before you know it we docked the other side,we disembarked walked pass the building that houses the foot tunnel, we declined this in this occasion and passed the old North Woolwich station 🚉 see on your internet for the history on this station. So in summary take this free ferry ⛴ you have to do this once if you are a Londoner.

I haven’t used this ferry for 10 years. Now I know why - It’s beyond useless along with the useless staff. Waited about 40 minutes - and it was not really that busy.

Just want to say a great big thank you to all the guys that work on the ferry. It's down to you guys I've been able to travel to and from work during these hard times. This has meant that I have been able to provide on going childcare to critical workers. Thank you so much. your efforts are appreciated. Keep up the good work.
