Henley on Thames has often been named one of the most beautiful towns in England, and it’s not hard to see why. Henley itself is a designated town of ‘special architectural or historical interest’, dotted with Georgian frontages and historic architecture.
A walking tour is highly recommended for anyone wanting to delve into the town and its history. Fans of the TV series Midsomer Murders will recognise the distinctive filming spots of Gabriel Machin’s butcher shop and Argyll Public House. Or you can simply take a self-guided tour to explore the area and the nearby Chiltern Hills.
There’s no doubt one of the most iconic sights in Henley is the river. The Thames National Trail takes you through several counties, from its source in the Cotswolds all the way through to London. For a pleasant stroll, walk from Marsh Lock to Hambleden Lock. Or, if you fancy seeing the landscape by water, hire a boat for a unique and memorable experience.
If you’re looking for a holiday destination packed with fun and activities, Henley on Thames is a perfect fit. The area is renowned for its celebrations and festivals, including the highlight of the rowing world – the Royal Regatta. Another highlight is the Thames Traditional Boat Festival. Each provides a fun day out for the whole family with plenty of things to take part in along the riverside.
Food lovers will love the variety of local eateries and independent shops to explore. Enjoy an afternoon tea overlooking the river, or discover hidden pubs where royalty once frequented. The town even has its own gin, so you’ve already got the perfect excuse to head out. Or see how many pubs you can tick off the Henley Ale Trail.
No visit to Henley on Thames would be complete without a stop at the River & Rowing Museum, where you’ll find everything you could ever want to see and know about the Thames, the sport of rowing, and the town itself. Or stop off at Nuffield Place – home of Morris Motors founder, William Morris (Lord Nuffield) – to learn how one of world’s richest men in the early 20th century spent most of his money on philanthropy (although the house itself isn’t too shabby!)
