The Great River Race

Not to be confused with the Great Race between Oxford and Cambridge rowing crews – this traditional boat race sees a great flotilla of traditional, oar powered craft take to the Thames for a semi-competitive race from London Docklands to Richmond.

Any bridge upstream from the Docklands will afford a good view of the competing boats with the fleet expected to reach Tower Bridge 30 minutes after starting, Westminster Bridge 15 minutes later and getting to Richmond around 3:45pm. Most of the craft will proceed upstream at a leisurely pace, so there may be hours between the leaders and the stragglers.
