Why Chiltern Relocation loves Henley-on-Thames: The combination of being on the bank of the river Thames and at the edge of the Chiltern Hills makes Henley-on-Thames a sought after location where residents can enjoy the cosmopolitan town with a wide range of social events on offer.


Henley-on-Thames is one of the most picturesque towns in Oxfordshire and was founded in the 12th century as a river crossing and port for the supply of timber and grain along the river to London.


The wide High Street with many timber clad buildings is home to a range of specialist shops, cafes and restaurants giving the town a buzzy feel. There is a weekly market held every Thursday and a monthly farmers market.


Henley-on-Thames is perhaps best known for the annual Royal Regatta, which attracts some of the world’s finest rowers. Other annual events such as the Henley Festival of Music and Arts and the Henley Food Festival are also key dates in the town’s calendar. Attractions include the award-winning River and Rowing Museum, boat trips, Mill Meadows with two play areas for children, the Thames Path for riverside walks and the fourth oldest working theatre in the country.


There are many attractive villages surrounding Henley-on-Thames such as Nettlebed and Wargrave which are very popular with families. There are also excellent schooling options available at all levels.


Whether you’re a home owner searching for the perfect new home or a manager looking to relocate employees, we are committed to providing the best possible relocation service.


Serving the Henley-on-Thames area, we take a personal and flexible approach with all our clients, using our insider knowledge to ensure you have all the information you need whilst keeping the whole process straightforward and stress free.
