Henley Regatta Dress Code
The dress codes at Henley Regatta are well known, and feared by many. But don’t worry, it’s not as strict or scary as you might think. For our Boaters Enclosure facility, the dress code is a little more relaxed than in some others, but dress to impress and think of a ‘summer garden party’ atmosphere.
Gentlemen really should choose to wear a collared shirt and tie along with a blazer or suit of their choosing. Ladies have the choice to wear summer dresses or formal wear. Remember, you can never be overdressed, but you can be denied entry for being too casual.
