Overview

Henley On Themes' rich history and culture is the perfect setting for a balloon trip. The main street has many Georgian frontages built on to older buildings. There are many coaching inns including the Red Lion, which, so legend has it, has accommodated Charles I, Boswell and George III - ensuring a memorable experience you'll cherish for many years.
