Henley Regatta is a free to attend event.

Henley Regatta was first held in 1839 and has been held annually 1st week July ever since. Originally staged by the Mayor and people of Henley as a public attraction, the emphasis rapidly changed with Royal patronage and now competitive amateur rowing is the main purpose.

Henley Regatta is also famous for grand hospitality - litres of Pimms and Champagne consumed through the midday sun. This is the River Thames at its very best. official HRR website
