Dorney information

Dorney Lake has some of the best tarmac trails in South East England, which makes it an excellent venue for learning to rollerski. In 2012 it was the Olympic rowing venue, and it is set amid beautiful parkland, close to Windsor, Eton and the river Thames.

Anyone coming to a rollerski class or course at Dorney has access to toilets in the boat house. There is also ample parking at Dorney for anyone coming by car - we meet at the large carpark on the left, just before you get to the boathouse.

In the summer we have to plan sessions around the rowing regatta and triathlon calendar, but mostly we have plenty of space, and don't interfere with the rowers using the facility.

If you are doing a course / class with us you don't need to pay for parking. We have to pay Dorney Lake Trust for use of the track, and a large proportion of the course fee goes towards this.

Own training - you are welcome to use Dorney for your own roller skiing or inline skating (rollerblading). You just need to pay for parking. You can use the tracks around the lake whenever you like, so long as there is no event on (rowing regatta, triathlon, etc).

CAR PARKING - it is free to park if you are doing one of our sessions, but you will need to 'pay and display' if you are doing your own training.
