Welcome to Henley Swim, home of the Henley Classic, the now iconic sunrise swim along one of the most famous and beautiful stretches of river in the world, the Henley Royal Regatta Course.

This year we held four very different and exciting open water swimming events, making sure we catered for both experienced open water swimmers who are looking for their next challenge, and swimming enthusiasts who are looking to take their first plunge into open water swimming.
