Rowing has always had a place in London’s sporting landscape and Kingston-upon-Thames has some excellent spots along the River Thames to get involved. Rowing is one of the toughest aerobic sports out there and is therefore a great way to keep fit and healthy. Facilities in Kingston-upon-Thames operate club only policies, but others run pay as you go systems. A lot of the rowing venues in this south west part of London will allow visitors to rent out important equipment such as boats and oars. Free parking is available at select venues.
