Visit Henley-on-Thames

View on map

Adjacent to the River Thames, Henley is overlooked by a beautiful Chiltern landscape of wooded hills and green fields. Its historic church, Town Hall, market square, many local shops, plus its own theatre/cinema, mean Henley is a delightful place for mooching about.

Best known for its annual Royal Regatta, Henley attracts some of the world’s finest rowers. Why not enjoy your own boat trip down the Regatta course and stop off at the town’s award-winning River and Rowing Museum.

The stretch of river between the regatta finish and Henley Bridge is the location for the annual Henley Festival of Music and Arts. Now a popular hospitality venue, it attracts some of the world’s top entertainers to perform on a floating stage in front of a dinner-jacketed audience; as well as holding exhibitions of art and sculpture.

Henley is 25 miles south east of Oxford and there are delightful walks around the town, leading you along the Thames Path and up into the Chiltern Hills for wonderful views of the Thames Valley.

Visit the Henley-on-Thames Tourist Information Centre and discover more about this picturesque and historic town.
