The BNY Mellon Boat Race: Oxford vs CambridgeOne of London's oldest sporting events, first raced in 1829, The Boat Race returns in 2014 for the 160th contest as England's two elite universities take to the water in a gruelling four-mile rowing race between Putney Bridge and Chiswick Bridge in southwest London. Around a quarter of a million fans are expected to line the Thames for the annual Boat Race in which Oxford (with 77 wins) will look to close in on the Light Blues of Cambridge (81 wins). For spectators, there's a great view - and some great pubs - around Furnivall 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 Bishop's Park behind the South Stand of Fulham football ground Craven Cottage, you'll find food stalls, family attractions and a large beer tent, while the banks of the river around Barnes are another popular spot. This year's Boat Race takes place at 6pm and the reserve crew race between Isis and Goldie is before the main event but events at the river bank kick off at 12noon at Bishop's Park and Furnivall Gardens.
