Henley Royal Regatta

Henley’s Straight Course and Temple Island with its 1771 fishing lodge

Walkers will encounter the annual Henley Royal Regatta this week on the approach to Henley.

After Hambleden Lock the towpath is soon alongside the Straight Course which was first used a century ago in 1924.

This slightly altered the shape of Temple Island and changed the Berkshire bank opposite.

Expect crowds and a diversion near Henley Bridge until after the last day on Sunday 7 July.
