Gloucester Boathouse is a new centre for rowing and canoeing in Gloucestershire to provide:

The ground floor boat bays and toilets were completed in August 2017 and the three main users, Gloucester Rowing Club (GRC), Hartpury University (GHP), and Cheltenham Ladies College (CLC) moved in.  We have since done a limited fit out of level 1 including main changing rooms and showers, temporary gym area and kitchen plus a lift has been installed for accessibility. 

In early 2023, we completed fitting out the 2nd floor of our building as a gym. Moving gym equipment from the 1st floor allows a greater separation of training and social activities. Our attention is now turning to raising funds to construct the main canoe store and to start fitting out the 1st floor. Completion of the site access road is also a priority.


Over £1.7 million has been raised to date but we need to raise at least another £250,000 to complete the project. Our immediate aim is to raise £125,000 for the canoe store and 1st floor fit out – accessible shower/toilet, meeting rooms and kitchen. Please help us meet that goal.
