The Boat Race

Since 1829, after two friends thought up the idea.

The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, which finishes near Chiswick Bridge, was first held in 1829, after two friends - one at Oxford and one at Cambridge - came up with the idea.

And so was born one of London's most famous sporting spectacles.

Location: Chiswick Bridge, W4
