Henley Royal Regatta – Fawley Meadows Official Hospitality

Each year Henley-on-Thames is brought to life by the Royal Regatta, which is undoubtedly the best known Regatta in the world. The Regatta, first held in 1839, is a unique rowing event offering 250 world class races over 5 days. Founded in 1839, it is famous both as a great sporting occasion and as a social event.

We request that you dress on the smarter side of casual i.e. no jeans or trainers. However this is an outdoor event so please dress accordingly. Ladies are advised that high heels are NOT suitable footwear for the boats or lawn area wedges or flats are more appropriate. Please note the ground surface is classified as 'soft'. Fancy dress is not permitted. The atmosphere is much less formal than the ‘Stewards' Enclosure’ (on the opposite side of the river), although many who attend do enter into the spirit of the Regatta, wearing club blazers and other rowing apparel.
