Welcome to LEANDER CLUB
Leander Club is the home of rowing and the most historic, prestigious and successful rowing club in the world, its athletes having won 138 Olympic and Paralympic medals since 1908. Founded in 1818, Leander Club is also the oldest non-academic rowing club in the world. We have a track record of coaching athletes to challenge for a place in the GB rowing squad.
Our private members’ club is a home from home for the distinguished rowers who visit during Regatta and year-round for Henley residents who love the river. Visitors to the Clubhouse enjoy the best drinking and dining views down the iconic Henley Royal Regatta course, from the elegant bar and the riverside decking. Our friendly staff organise regular social events and fitness classes. Leander’s excellent chefs provide a tantalising menu that keeps our Members coming back with their guests time and again!
