An attractive, atmospheric riverside town in the Chiltern Hills, Henley boasts an 18th century five-arched bridge over the Thames but is internationally famous for its Royal Regatta which draws crowds of blazer-clad rowing enthusiasts each summer. The regatta course is the longest straight stretch on the river.

The town grew up as a river crossing and as a port supplying goods to London. It is full of Georgian buildings and has a number of old coaching inns.

St. Mary’s Church has a 16th century chequerwork tower while a porch links it to a 14th century chantry house.

A few miles north of Henley is beautiful Greys Court, a 17th century mansion constructed on top of the remains of an older castle. It was named after Lord de Grey who fought at Crecy and was one of the original Knights of the Garter. It was once occupied by William Knollys, said to be the ‘real’ Malvolio of Shakespeare fame.
