The regatta is rowed on the Albany Reach section of the river as shown on the map below. The site is accessed from the river end of Aragon Avenue. The postcode of the bottom of Aragon Avenue is KT7 0PY and the What3Words location is ///speech.else.chat.

Only vehicles towing boat trailers, vehicles with boats on their roofs, some non-towing school minibuses and vehicles for Disabled Badge Holders will be allowed down Aragon Avenue. Disabled Badge Holders should contact info@thamesdittonregatta.co.uk to get an Albany Reach Parking Pass.

Other vehicles will not be allowed down Aragon Avenue as there is no space for them to park on the regatta site and this residential road has to be kept clear for trailer access and residents. See Parking below for suggestions on where else you can park.

When choosing your approach route, please note that there is no right turn into Summer Road if you are heading north up Hampton Court Way. Therefore, if taking that route, I suggest you turn right into Embercourt Avenue, and then take the 3rd left at the railway bridge roundabout into Speer Road (although this too tight a turn with a trailer), which will bring you out at Aragon Avenue, or continue north over Hampton Court Bridge, go right round the roundabout, and then you can turn left into Summer Road when heading south on Hampton Court Way.

Parking

Unfortunately, despite trying, the regatta has been unable to secure a dedicated parking area for spectators/competitors cars not transporting boats. Some parking is available in nearby streets: please be extra careful to park courteously, observe the Highway Code, and not to block driveways, park too close to junctions etc. The map below shows a Pay & Display carpark in Ashley Road in the center of the village where you can park all day for £4. From there walk through Church Walk to Summer Road and thence to the regatta site. Hampton Court Railway Station car park costs £7 till 4pm, and £3.50 from 4pm to midnight, and is about 10-15 mins walk away.

Coaches (as in luxury buses, not rowing instructors) should disembark their passengers between the entrance to the KGS Sports Ground, just to the east of Summer crossing, and the top of Aragon Avenue, and then go and park elsewhere. Coach parking at Hampton Court Railway Station costs £15 per day.
