A historic market town on the River Thames in Oxfordshire, Henley-on-Thames lies 37 miles from London, 9 miles northeast of Reading and 7 miles west of Maidenhead.
Henley Royal Regatta is held annually on the River Thames and was first established in 1839. Henley Women’s Regatta and Henley Town and Visitors’ Regatta are different events.
The Royal Regatta lasts for five days (Wednesday to Sunday) over the first weekend in July and races are knockout competitions raced over one mile, 550 yards.
International crews are regularly attracted to Henley and the Regatta has its own rules as it pre-dates any national or international rowing organisation.
The most prestigious event at the Regatta is the Grand Challenge Cup for Men’s Eights which has been awarded since the Regatta was first staged. The Regatta is organised by a body of Stewards who are mainly former rowers themselves.
Certain enclosures at the regatta have a strict dress code.
The Chiltern Hills provide the backdrop to Henley and a choice of summer cruises are available. Or pilot yourself in a small motor or rowing boat. A trip to the River and Rowing Museum is highly recommended.
Henley is home to a host of small, quirky shops where you will find antiques, hand-made chocolates, and historical books.
Henley’s historic centre lies just a few strides from the River Thames and the main street has many Georgian frontages. Among the 300 buildings in the town, St Mary’s Church, the Town Hall, Market Place and the 18th century stone bridge have been designated: ‘of special architectural or historical interest.’
