The town of Henley-on-Thames is an attractive medieval market town sitting on the banks of the river Thames, over looked by the beautiful Chiltern landscape of wooded hills and green fields. Just a few strides from the riverbank is the heart of Henley, with a variety of historic features, such as; the church, town hall, the bridge joining Henley’s county of Oxfordshire with Royal Berkshire and the market square. The latter is bustling with busy stall holders and shoppers on market days. You’ll get to enjoy a wide range of shops, including boutiques, galleries, speciality food shops and antiques emporia."
Founded in the 12th century and best known for the annual royal regatta, Henley attracts the world’s finest rowers. Outside the town’s award-winning River and Rowing Museum, visitors are greeted by statues of the great Olympians Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent. Visitors can enjoy a boat trip down the Regatta course, either in one of the commercial boats that operate along this stretch or – rather more energetically – in a rowing boat. Afterwards you can relax in the well-maintained Mill Meadows park.
For lunch, why not try Raymond Blanc’s ‘patisserie’, the Maison Blanc. Blanc’s reputation precedes him and this restaurant does not disappoint. Or perhaps try Strada for modern Italian food in a stylish bistro-style eatery and, for lunch on the go, pick up a baguette from the Patisserie Franco Belge, located on the same road as Rohan Henley-on-Thames.
The Angel on the Bridge boasts spectacular views of the River Thames when sat on the outdoor decking which actually extends out over the river. Last but no means least, for a taste of retro style head to Bar McGoo’s – live music and weekend DJs make this intimate venue well worth a visit all year round.
This all adds up to Henley-on-Thames being a very attractive place in which to live and work, as well as being an excellent destination for visitors from all over the world. Come and visit, you won’t be disappointed.
