Posted by , 20th April, 2017

At the pinnacle of the British Summer sporting and the social season is the Henley Regatta. The event is the oldest in the world, dating back to 1839, and is the only regatta to be under the patronage of Her Majesty the Queen. Hosted at one of Britain’s finest stately homes, the Fawley River Club offers the most unique and unforgettable premium hospitality experience.  Mark your calendars as the regatta takes place over a five day period, from 28th June to 2nd July.

At Fawley!” Is when it all gets serious; where champions are made.

The Fawley River Club sits at an exclusive location on the river, offering unrivalled views so that guests can watch the race from start to finish, due to its central location on the course.  The race takes place on the only straight mile stretch of the Thames, punctuated by the umpire bellowing “At Fawley!” as the crew pass the halfway time.  200 races are of an international standard, including both Olympians and new crews participating.  For Private Members and their Guests, the Steward’s Enclosure is situated opposite the Finish Line, on the Berkshire bank.  Just downstream sits the Regatta Enclosure which is open to competitors, supporters and the public as they watch on from an open grandstand.

The Fawley River Club accommodates all as it features an exclusive restaurant, complete with lounge viewing decks and the spectacular floating ‘Long Water Bar’ experience.  To accompany the complimentary bar, the Henley Regatta ensures that luxury and elegance is all pervasive.  Guests are entitled to a gourmet four-course luncheon with quality wines, followed by Traditional High Tea in the afternoon.  If you’re looking for an extra VIP experience, Riverside Chalets are available where you will enjoy an array of enticing features including a river boat cruise, a private outdoor area with live entertainment whilst you and your group are attended to by award winning hospitality.
