The Relais

Where the River Thames meets the historic market town of Henley discover the perfect waterside retreat, a 16th-century coaching inn now reimagined for a life well lived today. Enjoy the easy familiarity of spending time in one of the 40 individually designed rooms at The Relais Henley, inspired by the liveliness of the Thames as it flows through the surrounding English countryside. Live our centuries of stories, as you discover dining at the Clipper Restaurant, cocktails at the Quarterdeck bar or al fresco meals in our inner courtyard. Dip into our meeting and workspace in the Palm Court, Petit Palm or Clip Bar while watching the rowers on the river. Fully renovated in 2020/2021.

Henley Town Hall

Home to the Gower Cottage Brownies Stage this year, the Grade II listed Town Hall is in the heart of the town, with bustling coffee shops and restaurants on its doorstep. For 2023, Gower Cottage will be bringing their horsebox brownie bar. It will be outside on the Market Place where they will be handing out programmes and selling their brownies, meeting high demand from festival-goers to buy them in Henley. The present Town Hall, built in 1897 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, opened in 1901. We return once again to transform this historic landmark into a stage to host some of the festival’s events. Town Hall, Market Place, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 2AQ Find out more at
