The London 2012 website provides the following description of the venue for the 2012 rowing.

Dorney Lake is a 2,200m, eight lane course with a separate return lane recently constructed to international standards by Eton College.
The project was a great success and, in 2006, the Dorney Lake hosted the Rowing World Championships, with high praise from both competitors and spectators.
Dorney Lake is set in a 400 acre park with a Nature Conservation area. During the bid to host the 2012
Games, funding was provided to build a new finishing tower at the course.
The existing Eton College Rowing Centre at Dorney Lake will be enhanced to provide improved facilities for athlete warm up and Flatwater Canoe/Kayak competition. A planning application for the improvements is due to be submitted this summer.
Design and construction will take place in 2009-10, ready for a test event prior to the 2012 Games.
This team will be selected at 2011 World Championships and the 2012 qualifying regatta.
