Recommended Viewing Locations
There are a number of locations where you can watch the race without being on a boat - to find out more about each of the viewing locations, click on the respective flags on the map below.
NOTE: There are many sections of the rivers which are accessible by public footpaths - these are not indicated on the map below because their views may be obscured by riverside vegetation, since the footpath is usually on the rond or flood bank. For accessible routes the public footpaths are marked on Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 maps.
A list of all the available location pages is given at the foot of this page.
