The Boat Race – Best places to watch it for free

Apr 03

The 2012 Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge Universities is in its 158th year, having started back in 1829. This year it’s happening on Saturday 7th April, at 2.15pm. The outside nature of the race means there are loads of places to watch the boats go by for FREE. So all you need is some dry weather, a blanket and a bottle of something fizzy to have a great afternoon.

It happens along the Thames from Putney to Mortlake in London.  Here’s a handy map to show you where the best places to watch it are:
