Want a unique venue to hire for your next corporate event? Hire the Clubhouse bar and kitchen at the Twickenham Rowing Club.
Twickenham Rowing Club was founded on the 26 July 1860 and is the third oldest rowing club on the Thames. This Victorian boathouse, on Eel Pie Island, sits on a uniquely beautiful stretch of the River Thames making it an idyllic place to row.
