For Henley Garden Party
Wednesday 4th July - Sunday 8th July 2018

10.30am - 11.30am

Guests are welcomed at the exclusive Maidenhead Steam Navigation facility at Bird Place, Henley on Thames. Morning coffee and Danish pastries can be enjoyed while you are entertained by our resident Traditional Jazz Band on the Lawns.

11.30 - 1.00pm

A Pimms, Bucks Fizz and Champagne reception will be served on the Lawns and onboard our elegant river boats as we begin an optional cruise aboard one of our luxury vessels up and down the racing course. You will have the opportunity to enjoy the rowing and wonderful atmosphere of the most prestigious event of the English Summer Season.


In your exclusive marquee a three course Luncheon will be served accompanied by fine French wines, English waters and Liqueurs.


Our afternoon cruise will take you upstream and after passing the finish line, you will be able to view Henley Town before the vessel navigates Rod Eyot Island. We will then cruise the entire length of the Course allowing guests to take in views of the Stewards Enclosure and Temple Island before returning to Bird Place. There will be a complimentary bar of Pimms, Wines, Beers and Soft drinks available throughout the cruise. Please note that our bars are exclusively aboard the boats during this period. There will not be a facility at Bird Place until we arrive back.


Upon our return to Bird Place, a classic English Afternoon Strawberries & Cream Tea will be available, which can either be enjoyed within your marquee or on the Lawns.
