Henley's Town & Visitors' Regatta is the only event of the year at which townsfolk and tourists can picnic and relax by the river on the magnificent lawns owned by the Royal Regatta. It's a family friendly event that offers refreshments, a licensed bar and rides aboard the majestic umpire launches. It's also the only regatta on the Henley Reach to allow 3-abreast racing and typically features around 200 crews from clubs from local towns, Oxford, London and further a-field. Racing starts early in the morning and carries on throughout the day, finishing with the last eight-oar final at around 7.30pm.
The town regatta has existed for over 150 years and it's different from the exclusive and world-renowned Royal Regatta because it's open to rowers of all abilities. There's no other time during the year when the carpet-like lawns are open to the public and the theme of accessibility is supported with free entry to the riverside enclosure and no dress code. People can bring their families or friends, whether they are avid rowing fans or just wanting to enjoy a day out by the river, without needing to worry about the cost or what to wear.
