Car Parking

Sat nav point: Gate A – (please note change of Gate for 2021) Temple Island Meadows, Remenham Lane, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 3DB. View Google map.

For 2021 car Parking is in the Spectator Zone near Temple Island.

Car parking fees are paid directly to the venue. Tickets can  be booked online

Please park in the official HWR car park. Parking on the local roads in Remenham causes congestion and makes it very difficult for the local community who have previously lodged official valid complaints.  Car parking in Remenham Lane is likely to mean that next year we will have to pay for  traffic management which will cause an increase on regatta entry fee.. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated.

Gate A Car Park is free to park until Friday 2nd July when charges will apply.

Please note if you have left your car overnight on Thursday you will need to pay on Friday. All towing vehicles must register in advance for a free pass.

Vehicles and boat trailers must NOT enter via the Henley Bridge junction & must follow the one way system not just on race days but during the week prior to racing. Please make sure that your trailer driver is aware of this.

Car Park Prices – Card only on the day – no cash tickets.
