With a population of some 10,000 Henley on Thames supports the many small, attractive villages in the countryside around. The town's prosperity goes back to the 12th century as river trade developed because of the town's position.  Take a look at the History page to find out more.Henley-on-Thames is a pretty riverside market town on one of the most beautiful stretches of the River Thames, in gently wooded, rolling countryside. It is an hour west of London and close to the M4 and M40 making it ideal for a day trip or for a long weekend away from the madding crowd.

Today there is a comfortable mix of architectural styles spanning the centuries with many interesting features for the historian, some of which are conveniently hidden in the churches and local pubs.

Against the the backdrop of history and natural tranquility lies an outstanding variety of specialist shops for the serious browser.  Residents and visitors alike can enjoy our many parks and open spaces, wander by the river, charter boats along the river and whet their appetites at the many and varied restaurants, cafes and pubs to which the town plays host.

If you live or work in Henley there are all kinds of ways you can get involved in the life of our thriving community, from sports and the arts to growing vegetables in our allotments or becoming a 'gardening buddy'.  Henley has something for everyone as we hope you will discover when you browse this website.

Check out our 'What's On' page for events in and around Henley coming up soon.
