Around Hurley House
Only five miles from Hurley House.
Nestled in a valley in the Chilterns, you’ll find the delightful 12th-century market town of Henley-on-Thames. Henley’s historic centre is just a few minutes’ walk from The River Thames from where you can walk along the Thames Path, hire a rowing or motor boat or just relax and watch the world go by.
A world-renowned centre of rowing thanks to the Royal Regatta, Henley has a quaint atmosphere, quirky independent shops and a peppering of museums and galleries. Furthermore, the annual Festival of Music and Arts is always a cultural treat for the diary.
The pretty riverside town of Marlow is located just 3 miles away. Its most famous landmark is the 19th-century suspension bridge, designed by William Tierney Clark, who used a similar design for his bridge linking Buda and Pest in Hungary. The town offers a vast array of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants plus lovely riverside walks. Every June the Marlow Town Regatta and Festival takes place providing two days of rowing and entertainment.
Crowned by stunning Windsor Castle – the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world and the Queen’s favourite weekend home – and linked by the beautiful River Thames, the Royal Borough has a rich mix of history, culture, heritage and fun making it one of South East England’s loveliest short break destinations and a ‘must see’ for everyone’s list.
