About Henley Royal Regatta 2021

Henley Royal Regatta (or Henley Regatta, its original name pre-dating Royal patronage) was established in March 1839. It is undoubtedly one of the best-known regattas in the world; and a highlight of both the summer sporting calendar and the English social season.

The Regatta attracts thousands of visitors over five days. Spectators are thrilled by over 200 races of an international standard which can include Olympic rowers, as well as crews new to the event.

In addition to watching the racing, visitors can take in the ambience of the enclosures, enjoying the array of restaurants, bars and shops available, as well as the charming views of Henley and the River Thames.


“Our ambition remains to stage the best Regatta possible this summer in the context of the ongoing pandemic, with the health and safety of all those involved in the event, as well as wider public health remaining our highest priorities.

“These are followed by our continued desire to offer the competitive pinnacle for the sport that Henley Royal Regatta represents, and to which athletes and coaches can aspire as our sport emerges from lockdown.”
