Why is only one boat working , no communication at all . The traffic it caused in the surrounding area was horrendous. Took me two and a half hours to do an 8 mile journey

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

Ferry Nice to cruise from Woolwich to North Woolwich
9/2020 • Soolomatka
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.

Beyond useless

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.

Great stuff

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.

Worth A Visit

Decided to use the ferry to cross the Thames by foot after visiting the Thames Barrier. It was about 7pm, but there was still a huge queue of cars on the north bank. Good views of the Thames Barrier and the lights of The City. Good way to see some of the city for free!

Going back in time ....
9/2019 • Soolomatka
As a kid I used to spend many Saturdays with my mates crossing the ferry backwards and forwards, it was like being in a different world. To be honest I don’t use this as a commuter but often when I’m out cycling for the day I go across the river on the boat. I’d encourage anyone with some spare time or in no hurry to cross the river on it just for the experience. Sadly the old boats have been decommissioned and Woolwich isn’t the shopping centre it used to be but if you do cross over to Woolwich then head down to Powis Street and take a selfie at the plaque on McDonalds as it is the first outlet to have opened in the UK back in 1974. Enjoy before they close the ferry as there’s talk of another crossing. It’s like going back in time .....

A very convenient and free method of crossing the river. The journey was quick and easy, and saved time. Recommended.

Worst tfl service ever
2/2020 • Pariskunnat
I have been using the woolwich ferry over 20 years and since the upgrade to the new ferries and new staff the time to cross the river has double.Seemed like the staff are delaying the crossing deliberately. Also they are either on strike,reduced 1 boat service or closed due to very trivial issues. Like everyone suggested please build a bridge its a no brainer.

By a frustrated motorist.
