Why visit Henley On Thames?

Activities on the River Thames

With a fabulous location next to the River Thames, it should be no surprise that Henley On Thames has a lively riverside. How you make the most of that is up to you – there are picnic spots like the Marsh Meadows and Mill Meadows but there’s also plenty of scope for getting out on the water too, whether it’s hiring a rowing boat or being a skipper for a day in a self-drive motorboat. 

Scenic walks

Countryside or coast might be the first things you think of when it comes to walking. However, Henley On Thames is an excellent spot for a good-quality ramble, whether it’s hiking along the 185-mile Thames Path (or at least part of it) or taking a loop into the Chiltern Hills and back. Henley On Thames is part of the ‘Walkers are Welcome’ scheme, and has routes including circular walks to Hambleden Lock and Aston, as well as a historical town trail. 

A National Trust gem

If Henley On Thames’ Victorian architecture has given you a taste for historical attractions, pay a trip to the National Trust’s Greys Court – it's only a 10-minute drive or a 20-minute cycle from Henley On Thames. Hailing from the Tudor times, the property has a 16th-century manor house, a grass maze, a 12th-century tower and a mill wheel powered by donkeys. In between these historic features you can relax in the rose garden.

Mill Meadow isn’t just a pleasant picnic spot – this stretch between Henley Bridge and the finishing point of the Henley Royal Regatta has a bandstand where live concerts often take place. 

Try Mr Hobbs Gin

Whether you’re having a meal in a traditional pub or in a bar alongside the river, keep your eyes peeled for Mr Hobbs Gin. This staple drink was founded in 1870 by town resident Mr Harry Hobbs, and the artisan speciality uses local botanicals.
