Bishops Park is located next to the River Thames in West London. It is one of the area's most popular and well-used parks. It is Grade II listed in English Heritage's Register of Parks and Gardens of special historic interest.

The park is located at the very start of The Boat Race, and we are delighted to host one of two fan parks in this beautiful location. This Fan Park is devoted to fun for all the family.
