By Sophie Palmer, also posted in News on

2016 Boat Race crowd at Furnivall GardensIf you're planning to watch the action live on the 2nd of April, here's our brief guide on where to go: dnams flags at the Boat RacesThe Adnams Fan Park at Furnivall Gardens Why not join us at our Fan Park, located in Furnivall Gardens in Hammersmith, London. Entry to the park is free and it's a great location to meet up with friends and family to cheer the rowers on from the riverbank as they pass. You can watch live BBC coverage of the race on the big screen. You can also enjoy an Adnams Bar with a range of great beers (including Ghost Ship, of course!), wines and spirits. The Gardens are also home to the Adnams VIP Beach Huts and a collection of some of London's best local street-food vendors. If you fancy having a row yourself, then why not have a go at our free rowing challenge at Lyric Square, Hammersmith (noon until 4pm) - see how far you can row in one minute! If you're really fast, you could win Beer for a Year! For more information on our Fan Park click here: The Boat Races have compiled a great list of key locations where you can watch the action unfold here. If you fancy heading to a pub in London on the day, these great pubs stock your favourite Ghost Ship:
  • The Dukes Head, Putney Arrive early - this pub is on the start line!
  • The Bulls Head, Barnes – Situated near to the finish line
  • The Half Moon, Putney – Not actually on the river, but very close to start line
  • Hammersmith Ram, Hammersmith – Again, just away from the river, but situated near Hammersmith Tube station
  • The Ship, Wandsworth Not on the race route, but it's always very busy before and after the races
  • The Duke on the Green, Parsons Green Again, not on the river, but a great venue to enjoy the atmosphere of the Boat Races.
