Twickenham Rowing Club



Twickenham Rowing Club


Founded in 1860, Twickenham Rowing Club is one of the oldest and largest rowing clubs in London. Its unique position on Londonís most beautiful stretch of the Thames makes Twickenham an idyllic place to row.

The first boathouse was built between 1861 and 1862 as a floating structure and was moored at some point off Twickenham Ait (Eel Pie Island).

In 1876, when the Club became the owners of the present site, the boathouse was put ashore. The piles for a new building were put in place in 1880.

Today, Twickenham Rowing Club is a club which caters for beginners and experienced rowers of all ages. Of course, the club does not have the worry of paying rent as the land was donated to the rowing club in 1876 by HRH Le Comte de Paris.
