Things to do in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire

Do you want to eat or have a drink at a 16th century coaching inn or in a 15th century timber framed building? Then, come to Henley-in-Arden!

Would you like to walk in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside where a 12th century motte and bailey castle used to be? Then Henley is the place for you.

How about walking the one mile picturesque High Street where you will find shops, antiques, restaurants, wine bars, pubs, coffee bars and all the time be surrounded by buildings covering every period in history going back to medieval times? There you will also find the famous Henley Ice Cream Parlour and our Heritage Centre and the 1448 St. John the Baptist Church. A few minutes walk away into adjoining Beaudesert Parish you can visit the 1170 St. Nicholas Church.

Or you may wish to stay at one of our local hotels and to experience the nearby Stratford-on-Avon theatre or Warwick Castle. Or you may wish to do business in Birmingham, Coventry or visit the National Exhibition Centre.

Of course you may just wish to relax and read a book or use one of our two Golf Clubs or play tennis. Everything is possible in Henley-in-Arden.

You will find us on the A3400 in Warwickshire 8 miles north of Stratford-upon-Avon, William Shakespeare's birthplace. The Henley-in-Arden railway station provides links to Birmingham and Stratford-upon-Avon. The M42 and M40 motorways are only minutes away.

Looking forward to meeting you in Henley-in-Arden where medieval history and architecture live together in the 21st century.
