Henley Royal Regatta Short Breaks in June and July

The Summer sporting and Social season is coming thick and fast now, following Royal Ascot this week is the Royal Henley Regatta next week.

Sit and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere by the river at this world-renowned Regatta.  Held on the River Thames at Henley in Oxfordshire, you can see over 200 international standard rowing races over 5 days – races can be as little as 5 minutes apart so there really never is a dull moment!

Of course the racing is taken very seriously but the Regatta is as well-known these days as one of the leading social events of the summer, so you can be assured of seeing the height of fashion and the consumption of champagne and strawberries in big quantities.

You can experience the racing from the Regatta Enclosure which includes grandstand seating alongside the river – children are welcome and those  under 14 are free with a paying adult.
