The Oxford & Cambridge Boat Races – Chiswick Pier

April 3 @ 12:30 pm BST

Come along to the Pier House where you can not only watch the start and finish of the boat race on their big screen but also walk outside to experience the live action as the boats pass. Chiswick Pier provides one of the best views of the race as you can watch the crews power upstream from Chiswick Eyot, past the Pier and through to the final bend before Barnes Railway Bridge.

Join them for a bite to eat and a drink before the races begin and listen to the sounds from their popular band Shenanigans. There will be food from Salt Beef Shack, Italian food from Soffrito and ice creams from Super Scoop gelato, along with the some of best value beer on the river at their Fuller’s bar. Hot drinks will also be available to purchase.

The races start at 14.23 with the first women’s race, finishing with the men’s race at 15.23. Between these two races will be the women’s reserve crews followed by the men’s reserve crews. They expect the boats to pass Chiswick Pier approximately 11 minutes after the race start times.

The Pier House opens at 12.30 pm and they will be serving food and drinks all afternoon.

Free, no booking required.
