The historical bridge is one of the highlights of the race, with all competitors needing to lower their masts to pass through the bridge. As a result, this is always a popular viewing location. There is a large car park at Latham's to the north-west, however, this has a stay limit and is for Latham's customers only.
Around the bridge there are viewing areas both sides of the old bridge on the northern shore and downstream on the southern shore.
Upstream of the new bypass bridge on the Martham Bank (southern shore) between the bridge and the holiday chalets is a viewing area, which can be accessed via a path from the road over Heigham Bridge.
Downstream of Heigham Bridge, there are three open areas (24hr moorings) from which good views of the river may be had. All three are accessible from a path starting beside the Phoenix Fleet dyke.
Repps Staithe is the only point on the southern (Repps) bank south of Heigham Bridge which is accessible by car, but the access road is narrow and there is only a very small carpark. The staithe is also accessible from Heigham Bridge along the path behind the holiday cottages.
