Henley Royal Regatta

Saturday June 30, 2012 at 10:00

Henley Royal RegattaMap and Directions

This Tastour takes you to Henley-on-Thames, one of England’s most charming villages, famous for its annual regatta (rowing event) which has taken place every year since its inception in 1839!

Come and experience the Henley Royal Regatta, one of the most significant events on the social calendar, as we celebrate not only more than 170 years of rowing tradition, but also the wonderful food, drink, and socializing that goes with it.

At this exclusive event, you’ll learn the history of this traditional British Experience as you sample the unique atmosphere and let yourself get carried away in the excitement of the races.

We’ll also be tasting and learning the difference between Demi-Sec and Brut Champagne.

This really was one of the most popular Tastour socials of 2011, so don’t miss out!

*There are only 15 spaces available so book your tickets now to avoid disappointment!

Our Royal Enclosure* tickets are now sold out.  However, if you wish to join us, a group of 10 of us will be exploring the best music venues and eateries along the river bank.  Several people who attended last year, have already booked for this year – which means this is an event not to be missed!

There are only 5 tickets left.

The reduced price for non-enclosure tickets include: Transport, Champagne and substantial Canapés for only £65, if booked by the 1st June.  After which they will be £75.

“A glorious day out at one of the highlight events of the British Summer. Kelly has now taken me to two traditional sporting events – Ascot and Henley. Both were thoroughly researched, well thought out and planned, with a few lessons in the history, etiquette and traditions thrown in. Thank you for two great days, Kelly.” -Liza

”Fantastic experience! Kelly is an amazing organiser and host! Would love to do it again next year!”- Ksenia


No formal dress code applies, although many people enjoy entering into the spirit of the occasion by dressing up rather smartly.  The dress code is similar to that at the Royal Ascot: ‘posh’ summer wedding or garden party wear.


Your ticket to see the races are included in this package price.  This is a ticket for the “Enclosures” or viewing areas for watching the race and is valued at £20. Since the Regatta owns most of the riverbank and parking area on the Oxfordshire side and some of it on the opposite Buckinghamshire side, it is essential to have a ticket.

The Enclosure contains a licensed bar and has excellent catering facilities with plenty of choice.


Guests will be driven to the Regatta via minibus.  As Henley is West of London, the pickup point will be Shepherd’s Bush at 10AM.  We’ll return to London at around 8PM. The coach will stop at Shepherd’s Bush and Embankment.

Note from the organiser

I realise that this is a large amount of money to commit, especially if you are new to the group.  All those who attended last year would testify, it’s worth every penny!  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to phone me.  -Kelly 0791 905 *3064 or email info@tastour.co.uk
