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.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 (photo kindly supplied by sidni.brener@yahoo.co.uk)
