The best way to find out all you need to know about the Regatta is to look at our FAQ page.


By road

The National Water Sports Centre is located on Adbolton Lane, off Regatta Way. Access is via the A6011 (Radcliffe Road) just off the A52. Sat-Nav users are advised to use the name ‘National Water Sports Centre’ rather than the postcode as some devices will direct you to Colwick Race Course as opposed to the Centre.

Admission Fees

In response to feedback, the Organising Committee has removed the previous on-foot admission fees for spectators.  The only charge currently levied is for parking.



The Water Sports Centre main car park is for officials and exhibitors only.  Three car parks are available around the course for spectators and competitors - some with views of the course. These will be signed when you arrive.  General car parking is charged at £15 per vehicle per day or £25 per vehicle per day for premium parking on the Grass Bank which has an excellent view of the Finish.  Three-day car park passes (£35 standard, £65 premium) and Saturday/Sunday passes are available (£25 standard, £40 premium) at discounted rates.  Income from parking is split between NWSC and the event, which goes towards offsetting the costs of running the event.  Please ensure you use the car parking facilities and do not park on any of the roads surrounding NWSC with double yellow lines as parking wardens are often present on event days.



Gazebos are only permitted in certain areas.  There are specific ptiches which must be reserved in advance.  This is covered in our FAQ section.
