Established in 1844, Guy’s Hospital Boat Club expanded through the years and has become King’s College London Boat Club, which represents not only King’s College London but also the united hospitals of Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’.
As we approach our 175th anniversary, we have had one of the most successful seasons ever, with both our beginners and senior athletes achieving our best results.
We compete both nationally and internationally, and are based in the world-famous Tideway Scullers School, which marks the finish line of the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race.
