Henley Regatta (June/July)
The Royal Regatta is certainly one of the best known rowing races to date, and it’s popularity brings thousands of people to the River Thames over five days of spectacular races.
These head-to-head races differ from ordinary rowing races, with only two boats competing per race. Nevertheless, this exciting, sophisticated event is full of thrills. See crews of new competitors and olympic heros glide through the water, as the sun blazes down on the water of the Thames.
Because this event is, unsurprisingly, popular, traffic and queues can be major problems. Don’t let this spoil your day, fly to Henley with Atlas Helicopters and arrive at Henley’s own heli-pad, just minutes from the river, where the action takes place.
Sit Back and Enjoy the Excitement in Picturesque Setting
Relax on the day and enjoy the unique mixture of English society and a jug of Pimm’s on the banks of the River Thames, without needing to worry about how much you are drinking or having to leave early to “beat the traffic”. Travel problems will be a distant memory on the day as you enjoy the rowing races.
Revel in the excitement of the racing schedule and enjoy the picturesque surroundings, the perfect setting for this popular and unique rowing event. Currently, Henley Regatta runs over 5 days each summer, with qualifying races the week before to offer 100 world-class races during the actual regatta, with Olympic stars often in attendance.
