Lots of people choose to stay in Cambridge's dreaming spires and take a train into central London for the boat race day itself, with Cambridge just a short 1-hour train ride into the city. The race itself takes place each year from Putney to Mortlake and spectators are advised to arrive early to get themselves a good viewing spot along the banks of the famous River Thames.

To be sure of being in the middle of all the fun and games build-up which Cambridge experiences ahead of the annual boat race, it is worth contacting Cambridge hotels early to be sure of getting a booking at a good price.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at, commented: "The boat race between Cambridge and Oxford is a world famous event and attracts visitors from all around the world, making Cambridge a busy place before and after the race itself. To be sure of getting the best prices and availability we recommend booking online well in advance."
