The Temple, the iconic starting point of both Henley Women's and Henley Royal Regatta's.

Henley Women's Regatta (HWR) (sometimes referred to as Women's Henley) is a rowing regatta held at Henley-on-Thames, England. It was first held in 1988, as a response to the absence of women's events at Henley Royal Regatta at that time.

HWR is held on the same stretch of the Thames as Henley Royal but the course is shorter 1,500 m (Henley is 2,112 m) and stops at Remenham Club. It takes place over Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 2 weeks before Henley Royal.

Since 2004 the regatta has offered Intermediate, Senior and Elite categories instead of College, Club and Open.
