Each summer, Henley-on-Thames is brought to life with the Henley Royal Regatta. The Regatta, first held in 1839, is a unique rowing event offering 100 world-class races over five days and the chance to see some of Britain's stars, while enjoying a day of lavish hospitality and elegance on the banks of the Thames. The regatta is a great hospitality option, offering a haven of relaxation within easy striking distance of London. River boat cruises and live entertainment are included in the offerings, while guests will have access to a private outdoor area too. Five-courses will be served for lunch, along with plentiful choice from the complimentary bar.
