Private Riverside Chalets are situated in the Official Fawley Meadows Hospitality Village. A village atmosphere has been created here, along the riverbank, which includes fun & interactive elements, relaxing lawn games and an alfresco lounge and bar area.
Fawley Meadows is situated on the opposite side (Buckinghamshire side) of the River Thames to the Stewards’ Enclosure. It is a picturesque location along the riverbank with lovely views of the racing as they approach the closing 500m of the race.
The river-fronted chalets each have a private garden area with garden furniture, defined by white picket fencing.
The private chalets are available for a minimum of 30 guests and multiples thereof. Each chalet has round tables, each to seat 10 guests. The privacy allows companies the opportunity to internally brand the chalets.
Catering is a key element of your day at Henley and after morning coffee and biscuits you can look forward to pre-lunch canapés followed by a sumptuous 5-course luncheon. Later in the day, you can enjoy a Full sweet & savoury Afternoon Tea with sandwiches, cakes & scones.
Each guest receives an official souvenir Henley Royal Regatta Racing Programme.
There are no admission tickets required to watch the Henley Royal Regatta, however, most vantage points along the river have been taken over by hospitality pavilions and the ticketed Regatta Enclosure (downstream from the Stewards). The key exception to this is the Stewards’ Enclosure itself (equivalent to Ascot’s Royal Enclosure), which sits opposite the regatta Finish Line, where tickets are usually only available for Members and their guests (there is over a 5-year waiting list to become a Member). However, the Fawley Hospitality Village package includes the option to purchase Stewards’ Enclosure admission as an upgrade of £50 pp plus vat (boat transfers included).
There is a full complimentary bar throughout the day that includes Champagne & Pimms, wines, beers, selected spirits, and soft drinks.
A riverboat Cruise is included, which runs throughout the day, you will be allocated a specific time for you and your guests. This is a popular addition to the day.
There is no entertainment or guest speakers in the private chalets.
There is a small TV monitor to allow you to keep track of other sporting events taking place, notably Wimbledon.
Car park labels are included on a 1:2 basis and the car park is ideally located adjacent to the hospitality village.
There is no formal dress code, except in the Stewards’ Enclosure, where gentlemen are required to wear lounge suits, or jackets/blazers with flannels, together with a tie or cravat. Ladies are required to wear dresses or skirts, with a hemline below the knee.
The Stewards’ Enclosure requires gentlemen to wear lounge suits, or jackets/blazers with flannels and a tie or cravat, ladies are required to wear dresses or skirts with a hemline below the knee. Outside of the enclosure, the atmosphere is less formal though most dress up, wearing club blazers and other rowing apparel.
Please allow extra time to enter car parks near the Regatta due to security measures and the one-way system in place during the Regatta which is indicated by signs. The main taxi drop point during the Regatta is on the main road, just a short walk from the enclosures.
