This delightful river-side market town is about 10 miles downstream from Reading and easily accessible from London. A direct train service runs to Paddington station in peak evening hours, while during the day a service runs via Twyford and takes under an hour. Most famous for being a centre for rowing, Henley hosts the annual Royal Regatta, a highlight of the English middle and upper classes which attracts thousands to the banks of the Thames each July and presumably does wonders for sales of Pimms, lemonade, cucumber, mint and strawberries. Lord Mayor of London Boris Johnson used to be an MP for Henley before he took up his role at City Hall, while Liam Gallagher and, er, Phillip Schofield are amongst part-time residents.
