The Boat Race 2018

Published: 23/03/2018 By Bianca Keating

Living in West London and in particular Fulham, Hammersmith or West Kensington really does have its benefits. We are surrounding by great schools, excellent restaurants, beautiful parks and excellent transport links to the whole of London. As Estate Agents with three offices in this local area we are always interested in events we feel our clients may be interested in.

This weekend will see the 164th Oxford and Cambridge boat race. This is an annual rowing competition between the country’s’ two most prestigious universities, Oxford and Cambridge
The first boat race took place in 1829 and is an annual tradition held across 4.2-miles of the River known as the championship course.  The event was retitled “The Cancer Research Boat Race” in 2016 as the sponsors decided they would be donating the title sponsorship to Cancer Research UK.

The boat race will take place Saturday 23rd March, at around 4.30pm, with the women’s race starting the event and the men’s race will follow at 5.30pm. We recommend you get a good spot early! As many as 250,000 people are due to line the Thames paths, Putney Bridge, Hammersmith Bridge and Barnes Bridges to watch the event!  Starting from Putney, travelling down the Thames past Bishops Park, through the Crabtree area, under Hammersmith Bridge and finally finishing in Barnes.

If you can’t make the event in person the BBC will televise the race from 4.30pm until 6.30pm

It really is a fabulous day out for all, and one not to be missed!
