It’s one hundred years since Henley was host to the Olympic Regatta in 1908. Our Olympic oarsmen and women won’t be taking part this year as they prepare for Beijing – but as ever there will be five days of extremely competitive racing between UK and international crews.

Visit the Henley Royal Regatta website for helpful information about how to get to the Regatta, the draw and the results. www.hrr.co.uk

The River & Rowing Museum has its own tent this year at the entrance to the Regatta (Henley Bridge end).  This will be open from about 11.00 am to 5.30 pm every day and features:

  • Interactive ‘In the Cox’s Seat’ – a chance to navigate the Henley course
  • ‘Inspired by Rowing’ – 1908 – 2008 sponsored by the Henley Stewards Charitable Trust
  • Henry Taunt – exhibition of the Victorian photographer’s views of the Thames

Or, if feel like escaping the madding crowds of the Regatta, walk along to the Museum itself at Mills Meadow.  There you’ll find archive footage and memorabilia of past Regattas, Christopher Gollon’s art exhibition which includes his specially commissioned painting capturing the passion and pain of competition, and much more.  Remember to take your ARA membership card along and make use of your 50% discount.  www.rrm.co.uk
