The Oxford & Cambridge Boat Races

Sunday 3rd April

Come along to the Pier House where you can not only watch the start and finish of the boat race on our 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 us for a bite to eat and a drink before the races begin and listen to the sounds from our popular band Shenanigans. There will be delicious food from Salt Beef Shack, Italian food from Soffrito and ice creams from Super Scoop gelato, along with the best value beer on the river at our Fuller’s bar. Hot drinks will also be available to purchase.

Why not come along with the family for the afternoon and get in the mood ready for the action.

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. We expect the boats to pass Chiswick Pier approximately 11 minutes after the race start times.

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