Oxford vs. Cambridge Boat RaceEngland's most famous universities square off in this four-mile rowing race which inaugurates the summer season in London. With it being the 158th annual Boat Race, this is one of the oldest sporting events in the world and is a spectacular display of strength and teamwork. Around a quarter of a million fans line the banks of the river to roar their encouragement (add to that 120m who follow the race on TV across the world). There's a great view - and some great pubs - around Furnival Gardens on the north side of the Thames near Hammersmith Bridge. Alternatively, you might like to watch from near the start at Putney Bridge, where the big screens on both banks allow spectators to monitor the race as it heads its way around the first bend. Nearby, at Bishops Park behind the South Stand of Fulham football ground Craven Cottage, you'll find food stalls, family attractions (bouncy castle, face painting and a climbing wall) and a large beer tent.

 

About Putney Bridge

Fine grade II listed stone bridge, opened in 1886, joining Fulham on the north side of the Thames to Putney on the south. Putney Bridge is famous as the start of the annual Varsity Boat Race. It also marks the finish of the annual Head of the River Race. More about Putney Bridge
