Car & trailer parking

Please park all cars and trailers in the official HWR parking areas located in the Spectator Zone and accessed via Gate A.

Parking on Remenham Lane, Remenham Church Lane and by the church causes congestion and makes it very difficult for the local community who have previously lodged official valid complaints. Any car parking in local roads is likely to mean that we will have to pay for traffic management which will result in an increase of the regatta entry fee.

To avoid issues a one-way traffic flow (see below) has been put in place and your cooperation would be greatly appreciated.


Book parking

Car and trailer parking tickets are available from HWR Parking.

Parking tickets can be booked up to and including the day attending the regatta, Tickets are issued as e-tickets which can be printed or presented on a mobile device at Gate A for access to the regatta site.

Cash payment is not accepted but Internet access is provided at Gate A to enable tickets to be purchased on arrival. Please pay in advance to avoid queueing and congestion at the entrance.

Please note that the first day of the regatta is very busy. which results in queues at Gate A. Competitors who are racing early in the morning of Friday 21st June should therefore prebook parking tickets and allow additional time to enter the site.
