About Lea Rowing Club

The Boathouse, Spring Hill
Clapton
East London, E5 9BL

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.

• Venue with British history • Light, spacious and modern • Stunning views of the river • Main hall, bar and study area available

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!

Great time

Dear Sally Please say thanks to Steve on my behalf. 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

Dear Stephen Thank you for your kindness and being so helpful in regards to hiring the L shape rawing club space last Saturday. Especially for coming over on Friday evening. We had a great party.

Wedding at the Lea
Venue Service

By Angel Brown, on 15 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2017

We had such an amazing day for our August wedding at the Lea Rowing Club. We had a hybrid Hindu/Christian wedding where we needed to cater for different diets, a hybrid ceremony and our own vision on decor. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to do their own thing. The club met our every need and supported us seamlessly. We felt very lucky when we found this venue as it is tricky to find a bright and airy hall with AC that can also shift gears for the evening when you want to dim the lighting and adjourn to the cosy bar attached. The balcony with a view of the narrow boats was a lovely bonus. So many of our guests said it was such a great day and I'm sure the venue was a big part of that.

Wonderful location

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. Heather and John

Countryside in the city!
Venue Service

By Liz & Colin Baker, on 20 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2016

The Lea Rowing Club is a really special venue - you get the feel of being out in the countryside, with wide open spaces and river views, but with the convenience of being 15 minutes from central London. We had our wedding here last September - a sit-down barbecue meal for 120 people (we hired long trestle tables) with an extra 40 guests arriving in the evening. The hall is a fantastic and versatile space with a wooden floor and clean white walls - bright and airy during the day, with dimmable lights for evening. We added loads of bright paper lanterns and fairy lights to make the space really special. The bar area too has a great feel to it - recently refurbished with high quality details and mid-century furniture. We had a 5 piece band and dance-floor in the main hall followed by a more intimate DJ set in the bar area - the flexibility of the rooms worked really well. As a ‘regular’ at the Club, I can also vouch for the on-site caterers - they are excellent value and will really look after you.
