London’s River Thames makes the city one of the best places to get involved in the sport of rowing. Booking a rowing session has never been easier and the river has many clubs to visit to get involved in the activity. Some rowing clubs in London will have boats and equipment for hire, but others will not – get in touch with individual clubs to check the situation. Sir Steve Redgrave and Katherine Grainger are two of Great Britain’s best ever sportspeople and they have inspired many Londoners to get into rowing. It’s a great balance between stamina, power and skill.
