Walking in Henley
When it comes to walking in Henley, there is something for everyone; from short guided historic tours and nature trails to riverside walks and long country rambles.
Accredited as a Walkers are Welcome Town. Businesses and organisations supporting the initiative include Henley Town Council, the River & Rowing Museum, Henley and Goring Ramblers, A Foot in the Chilterns Nordic Walking, Stoke Row Stores, the Cherry Tree, Stoke Row, Stag and Huntsman, Hambleden, Five Horseshoes, Maidensgrove, White Hart, Nettlebed, The Barn, Turville Heath, and Going Forward Buses.
Henley is an easy town to walk around and there are some attractive short walks along the River Thames. If you’re feeling more energetic it is easy to get into the surrounding hills and woods for much longer treks to country pubs. Henley also features on the Thames Path and makes an ideal stopping point for refreshments or an overnight stay.
The Henley & Goring Ramblers have a schedule of short walks (5 miles or less) every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month from Henley Town Hall, plus various others, which are a lovely way of exploring the area and open to non-members. Henley is also working towards Walkers are Welcome accreditation.
