A day out at Henley Royal Regatta is very special and dressing for the occasion is an important part of the experience. Guests have the choice to follow the dress code for the Stewards’ Enclosure or that of Fawley Meadows, detailed below.
Ladies should dress in a manner as befits a formal occasion. Dresses and skirts should be of modest length defined as falling just above the knee or longer. Trousers must be full length. Whilst not a requirement, ladies are encouraged to wear hats.
Gentlemen are required to wear lounge suits, or jackets or blazers with flannels, and a collared shirt. A tie or cravat is preferable but not compulsory.
Jeans, shorts, denim or trainers are NOT acceptable. Children should be dressed smartly. Fancy dress is not permitted.
Those attending the Regatta on Temple Island and in the Stewards’ Enclosure must dress in accordance with long established tradition.
Ladies are required to wear dresses or skirts with a hemline below the knee and will not be admitted wearing divided skirts, culottes or trousers of any kind. Similarly, no one will be admitted to the Stewards’ Enclosure wearing shorts or jeans. Whilst not a requirement, it is customary for ladies to wear hats.
Gentlemen are required to wear lounge suits, or jackets or blazers with flannels, and a tie or cravat.
Please ensure that the dress code is observed so that the standards are maintained and to avoid the possibility of embarrassment of a guest being refused admission.
