You should be able to find a place to watch on either side of the river along the full length of the course, but particular areas to note are: Putney Embankment and Bishops Park (at the start); Hammersmith and Barnes (mid-course); Dukes Meadows and Chiswick Bridge (at the finish).
Events at the river bank kick off at 12pm at Bishop's Park, Fulham and the Adnams Fan Park in Furnivall Gardens, Hammersmith. In both parks the Races will be broadcast live on the big screens and there will also but a great selection of refreshements available.
