The Henley Story Curator Tour

Bringing the history of Henley to life

We’re excited to shed new light and insights into some of the older items in the Museum. This intimate Curator Tour: The Henley Story takes place on selected Thursdays at 2pm. Max 8 people. Pre-booking essential.

Discover the rich history of Henley on Thames, made famous by the Henley Royal Regatta, on a new and informative guided tour showcasing some unique and historic items from the collection. From the first evidence of human activity in this area, 250,000 years ago, through to the rise of Leander Club and regattas drawing rowers and pleasure seekers from around the world, hear how Henley has always been so closely linked to its special position on the River Thames and about the fascinating people who have shaped its story.

The tour is followed by time to enjoy the gallery and the opportunity to ask questions.
