The Boat Race

Not only is it Easter this weekend but it is also the Boat Race! 300,000 spectators in London will line the four-and-a-quarter-mile Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race course from Putney to Mortlake on the afternoon of Sunday March 27 2016, with The Cancer Research UK Women’s Boat Race starting at 3.10pm, and The Cancer Research UK Boat Race starting at 4.10pm.

Here is a list of some great places to watch:

  1. The Crabtree, Fulham - The Victorian gastropub will have a no-bookings barbecue and hog roast in its large garden, while live music will play all day.
  2. The Blue Anchor, Hammersmith - Another outdoor barbecue right on the river with screens showing inside.
  3. The Duke's Head, Putney - Live music from 2pm and then live DJs until late in the downstairs Rowing Club. Free entry.
