First described in the 12th Century with little fundamental change since the Victorian era, Henley is a quintessential English market town.
The best way to breathe in Henley’s history is to follow The Henley Trail which guides you on a walk around all of the town’s historic streets and buildings. Download the trail by clicking the link above or pick a copy up from the Visitor Information Centre in the Town Hall.
The River & Rowing Museum in Mill Meadows has a fascinating gallery devoted to Henley and Richard Way Booksellers in Friday Street has many books and antiquarian maps of the town and area.
You’ll find a large number of historic photos of the town and river on the Henley-on-Thames Past & Present Facebook Group.
