Did You Know?
Michael Palin (Monty Python, Pole to Pole, etc.) used to have roots in Henley. His maternal Grandparents were the landowners of Hernes Estate. Funny that one of our relations was a top herdsman on that same estate. A wonderful valley. If you visit Henley do try and get around to walking through it. Although not as open as when we were growing up with a "giant's foot" to play in. Still a nice place. See our local Henley walk.

Henley is a market town in Oxfordshire, England. It can be found in the beautiful Thames Valley region along one of the most scenic stretches of the River Thames. The town is picturesque and relaxing with plenty to see and do.
Henley Bridge sits proudly on the river and joins the town to the village of Remenham where the famous Henley Royal Regatta is held. Henley Royal Regatta lasts for four days in late June / early July and truly brings the town to life. The Regatta culminates with a fireworks finale to send the town partying into the Henley Festival a week later.
