  • Visitor Information

On Boat Race day the river banks by Hammersmith Bridge are heaving with spectators who come to watch Oxford battle it out with Cambridge at one of the oldest sporting events in the world. And in Furnivall Gardens - which lies in the middle section of the course - there's free family-friendly entertainment, beer tents and food organised by the local Hammersmith & Fulham Council who also oversee a hub of entertainment at Bishop's Park in Fulham. Enjoy the build-up from 12noon before watching the rowing on the big screens.
