See the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race in Style!

Treat the Varsity Blues with a deluxe riverside retreat. Celebrate the Boat Race at the Wyndham Grand, London Chelsea Harbour

A Grandstand View

As eighteen of the UK's sporting and academic elite battle over the epic four and a quarter-mile course from Putney to Mortlake, visitors to London can take it easy with a deluxe stay at the waterside Wyndham Grand in Chelsea Harbour.

The Wyndham Grand is London's only five-star, all-suite hotel, just a mile and a half along the river from the start line in Putney, with Chelsea's renowned nightlife on the doorstep for the after-party.

Afternoon Tea with a View

Guests will enjoy an early afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones, pastries and a classic glass of Pimm's and lemonade at hotel before racing to the river with a personal chauffeur to see the event swing into action. As the crews head back to dry land, guests can return to the hotel to enjoy the harbour views and the morning after, a full English breakfast will sort the winners from the losers once and for all!

Take Advantage of this Gold Star Package

The Varsity Blues package is available on 26 March, and for 335 includes:

One night in a luxurious Chelsea Suite for two
Afternoon tea including Pimm's and lemonade for two
Private transfers to and from Putney Bridge
Full English breakfast for two
