Welcome to Leicester Rowing Club

We are a friendly rowing club in the heart of the City of Leicester, on the Grand Union Canal "Mile Straight". We cater for all age groups and abilities and welcome new members without any previous experience of rowing.

The club has its own custom built Boat House and along with a wide variety of boats suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes, we have a fully equipped gym and rowing machine room. We also have a bar and function room which is available for hire.
