Training Camps

If you’re thinking of having a training camp and haven’t the time or money to go abroad, why not consider Grosvenor Rowing Club?

Why choose Grosvenor?

  • For the River – The River Dee provides more than 20 km of uninterrupted water.
  • For the Location – Our boathouse has easy access to the River Dee and is within walking distance of the historic city of Chester.
  • For the après-rowing – Chester city centre is small enough to explore on foot with a multitude of bars, restaurants and pubs. With everything you would expect of a modern city, Chester is the ideal place to relax after a hard day on the river.
