Information For Lea Rowing Club

Lea Rowing Club is a successful and vibrant, British Rowing affiliated club, its heritage dates back to the 19th century.

Despite its location, perched between the vibrant east London boroughs of Hackney and Waltham Forest, Lea Rowing Club feels close to wilderness, directly overlooking a tranquil stretch of the River Lea and surrounded on all sides by ancient marshland.

Recently renovated, the club’s beautiful Boathouse offers a series of complementary spacious areas, perfect for holding a celebration or wedding reception.

The main hall is light and airy, and offers great ceiling heights. The space can hold up to 130 people seated for dining or 200 standing guests. It boasts a clean, modern and minimal backdrop to your celebration, and is fully air-conditioned with a large dance floor.

The two additional rooms – the L shaped bar and study – boast bags of character and are located to the rear of the venue, sharing a huge private balcony with stunning views over the River Lea and Walthamstow marshes beyond.

We had a wonderful wedding party
We had a wonderful wedding party at the Lea Rowing Club in June. It was perfect for our party of 80 friends and family with great catering available, a charming bar and club house and wonderful balconies with views over the river. Everyone who came loved the venue and the secret charm of this spot in London. A great find for an event.

We had a BRILLIANT party
Dear Stephen, We had a BRILLIANT party- thanks in part to your lovely staff. Antonia was so kind and helped with anything we needed. Truly a joy! All my friends will want to have parties there now- which is great as long as they don’t book the dates I might want! Meena

I had the most lovely party.
The room looked lovely with the fairy lights, it all worked very well, Francisco provided good food and Pedro did a good job at the Bar. The wines were praised, so thanks to his suggestions, and the Champagne was generally very much appreciated. With best wishes

It really was perfect for our event and day
I particularly wanted to thank you for the bar staffs fabulous work on the night, you looked after us brilliantly and whilst a lot of people commented on how great the venue was and looked, quite a few friends said how fantastic the staff were - and you looked after us a treat, handed over bubbles at all the right moments and were a joy. Thanks again, the whole thing couldn't have been better - and your venue was a huge part of that. Very best, Jane and John
