About Henley Royal Regatta 2023

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 the six days of action-packed racing. 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-on-Thames and the River Thames.
