What a lot of riverside fun we have in store

HENLEY Royal Regatta is probably the best known regatta in the world, attracting thousands of visitors to our town each year, writes Lucy Boon.

Spectators are rewarded with around 200 races at an international and Olympian standard.

However, it’s not the only waterfront event that brings swarms of visitors to ours and neighbouring towns each summer.
