Visiting Crews & Training Camps

Goring Gap Rowing Club welcomes visiting crews and training camps.

We have a wide, 6km stretch of the Thames between Goring Lock and Whitchurch Lock in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Until 1973, the The National Schools’ Regatta was on our reach. The river is only shared with Pangbourne College.

We are located off the A329 in Lower Basildon near Streatley and Goring. We are 70 minutes drive from London and 40 minutes from Oxford.

We charge £10 per rower per day. Coxes and coaches do not pay.
You can hire our touring boats for £25 each per weekend day or £10 each per weekday. Racing boats are available on request.
Our launch, and its petrol, costs £50 per day.

Streatley youth hostel is a four minute drive away. There is accommodation for higher budgets in Goring, for example The Swan and The Miller of Mansfield.

We have no plumbing or electricity yet and are relying on a portaloo. We have plans but it will take time.

Please email us beforehand.
