Attracting thousands of visitors over a 5 day period, Henley Royal Regatta is one of the best known and most popular rowing regattas in the world.
With over 200 races taking place, rowing takes centre stage, but for many it is as much an excuse to enjoy a lively day by the riverside. Tickets for the Regatta Enclosure are available to members of the public for between £18 and £24, depending on which day you attend, and can be purchased on the Henley Royal Regatta website (below). The Regatta Enclosure includes riverside seating, a restaurant and a bar.
Getting there: Henley is situated on the River Thames in Oxfordshire. It can be reached by train from London Paddington or from Oxford in around an hour, usually requiring at least one change. Car parking is available but it is recommended to buy parking permits in advance
