The Boathouse

Update – Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Updated  February 2021

We are committed to caring for the health and well being of our members and guests and accordingly have introduced various measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in accordance with the latest Government guidance.

 These measures include regular cleaning regimes, PPE equipment, hand sanitizer stations, one-way systems, contact and trace details as well as reduced capacities in our venue.

However, we are currently closed. This means there are no events being held at the clubhouse until further notice. We have also taken the decision not to book weddings at the venue until spring 2021 at the earliest. We still have availability for later in the year. Please check the availability section for further information. 

You can, however, arrange to view the venue via the General Manager. We ask you limit the numbers viewing to two and that you wear a mask. The capacity numbers detailed on the web site will be reviewed on a regular basis in line with the latest Government guidance. Please liaise with the General Manager when booking your event and in the period leading up to your event.

Best wishes

The Boathouse Events Team.

Welcome to The Boathouse, home to the Lea Rowing Club events web site. In our newly refurbished clubhouse you can get married (we are fully licensed) throw a party or doing both is proving ever more popular. Alternatively, you can enjoy a delicious Sunday lunch and let the afternoon drift by listening to our resident DJ’s (see Roasts n’ Records)  or come to a gig on a Friday night when we host a brilliant array of mostly local  bands (see Live at the Lea). You might even want to try all three.

We are located on the River Lea immediately adjacent Springfield Park in the borough of Hackney. Our events happen on the first floor where our bar and balcony enjoy fabulous views of the river Lea. No better place to toast the bride, sup a chilled white wine, plucked from our excellent wine list, or enjoy one of our craft ales.

We are well served by public transport with Liverpool Street station a mere 19 mins by over ground to Stamford Hill and a 15 mins walk or 4 min bus ride away. Seven Sisters tube is only 13 mins from Oxford Circus with a host of buses to complete the journey. Tottenham Hale is one stop further along from where you can stroll along the river direct to the venue. There is a free car park next door and unrestricted parking locally.

Please scroll down for more information about our events and take a look around the rest of our site where you will find more information about the venue, our location, our charges and other relevant information. If you are interested in making a booking please check availability first and if you have any questions or want to have a look around please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
