Lea Rowing Club is a British Rowing affiliated club, its heritage dating back to the 19th century. Its location, perched between the vibrant east London boroughs of Hackney and Waltham Forest, makes it 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 venue is also fully licensed for weddings.
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.
The Boathouse can be hired as a dry hire venue or couples can choose from one of three inclusive wedding packages. Request our wedding package brochure for more information on these.

We just wanted to thank you for your wonderful ven
It really was perfect for our event and day.Sent on 30/07/2019
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.

Guests really loved the venue, despite me choosing the evening with the worst weather. Good time had by all, perhaps too good by some!Sent on 26/09/2018
