Henley-on-Thames' main claim to international fame is its rowing regatta, the highlight of the arts festival held every summer. The town is full of tradition, and visitors flock here all year round to enjoy its rich historic and artistic heritage. Henley sits on the River Thames and is an ancient market town dating back to the 12th century. There are plenty of things to enjoy in addition to the summer festival, and when you're based at a local Oxfordshire hotel or guesthouse you'll easily be able to explore this unique area and sample its many delights.
One of the many delights of Henley is its main street, which is lined with Georgian façades and is a superb example of period style. These and the even older buildings behind them are protected as being of special historical or architectural interest. As there are over 300 of them in Henley you begin to understand the importance and charm of this delightful town. Market place, the town hall, St. Mary's Church and Henley Bridge are all delegated thus and combine to make Henley an exceedingly picturesque and historic place to explore from your Oxfordshire hotel. With the backdrop of the Chilterns and the surrounding green fields and wooded hills, it's no wonder that power shopping, long lunches and simply relaxing over a coffee are favourite pastimes here.
The Music and Arts Festival and the Royal Regatta are just two of the annual festivals here, and visitors throughout the year have plenty of other things to enjoy as well as these. The River and Rowing Museum is a real gem, and a popular sport is to go rowing down the Thames, or simply to take a relaxing boat trip and explore other sections of the famous river. Take a guided tour around the town or explore the Thames Path riverside walking route. Kenton Theatre is one of the oldest theatres in the country that still functions as such, and when you stay at an Oxfordshire Guesthouse, B&B or hotel in Henley you'll have easy access to this and many other attractions.
