About Henley

The historic town of Henley-On-Thames lies in the Chiltern Hills, 25 miles from Oxford and 30 miles from London. The town has a long association with rowing as the home of the Annual Henley Royal Regatta and the award-winning Henley River and Rowing Museum.

The race can be watched from anywhere along the Berkshire towpath between Henley Bridge and Temple Island Meadow, a short distance from Henley Town Centre. Trains run to Henley from London and Reading and spectator parking is available at Temple Island Meadow.

Henley is steeped in the traditions and history of rowing in this country. It is home to the famous Henley Royal Regatta; to Leander Club, a centre of excellence in both Men’s and Women’s Rowing; numerous rowing and canoe clubs, including the widely respected, Henley Rowing Club and Upper Thames Rowing Club and to the River and Rowing Museum.

Henley offers a variety of historic and attractive riverside pubs and restaurants for those planning to watch the racing and make 'a day' out in Henley.
