EXEMPLARY OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES

Henley is a town which loves a good soirée and offers events throughout the year – running the gamut from the world-renowned Henley Royal Regatta and the music festival Rewind to the Henley Literary Festival.


Henley Royal Regatta
The height of sophistication (and the summer social season), Henley lives and breathes the Royal Regatta for the five days it’s in town. Dress to impress and enjoy the event.


Henley Festival
This black-tie festival spans five nights of music, comedy and culture. Where else can you watch the headlining act play on a floating stage? A boutique event where you can soak up the atmosphere and be entertained.

Henley Literary Festival
Get ready to ignite the imagination at one of the best literary festivals in the country. Spread over nine days, with more than 100 events for adults and children – which world-famous authors will be attending this year?

Surrounded by the picturesque Chiltern hills, Henley is ideal for those who love the outdoors. Tranquil river strolls, circular walks, routes for the avid cyclist and two local golf clubs… you’ll be hard pressed to find a more perfect place for leisure pursuits than Henley.

B:More at Badgemore Park
Only a three-minute drive from Vicinia and regarded as the friendliest golf course (and the closest to you), with spectacular grounds and a glorious 18-hole parkland course.


Walking
Henley is surrounded by beautiful scenery, crisscrossed with routes for even the most avid walker. Join the local walking group, the Henley & Goring Ramblers, to add a social element.


Cycling
Find the Chilterns Cycleway at your doorstep – this 170-mile circular route is a must if you live in Henley. The local cycle club, GS Henley, is dedicated to making your cycling experience the best it can be!

Rugby
Henley Rugby Club is 1,000 members strong, with a variety of teams, from the semi-pro Hawks to women’s and youth teams. The Dry Leas ground is one of the finest pitches in the country.


Cricket
Henley Cricket Club plays high-quality, enjoyable cricket at all levels, welcoming new members and supporters alike.


Rowing & Boating
If you want to get out on the river, you have your choice of clubs and boat hires. Take a look at Henley Rowing Club, one of the oldest rowing clubs in Britain.


Leander Club
The top single sports club in the world for Olympic gold medals won, The Leander Club strives for excellence and is open to non-rowing members.

 

SEVEN MINUTES TO EXHILARATION

That’s how long it takes to travel the 1 mile and 550 yards of the Henley Royal Regatta course… just seven minutes, when you’re at the top of your form, to win or lose the race.

Spectators and teams come from around the world to watch or compete in over 20 events for men, women and juniors. For you, all of the action and excitement are just minutes away from your
apartment at Vicinia.


This five-day July event is drastically different from the 1839 one-day attraction and fair hosted by the mayor and people of Henley. Who could have predicted that the Henley fair and regatta would become the world-renowned event it is today?


Did you know that the Henley Royal Regatta runs by its own rules? It’s recognised by British Rowing and the International Rowing Federation (FISA), yet is not under their jurisdiction. Why? It all comes down to age: this regatta pre-dates such organisations by decades.


When all is said and done, at the end of the summer season, every part of the installation is removed, both on land and in the water, leaving the river and its banks pristine between September and March. The regatta believes in leaving no trace and protecting its racing environment – for, without Henley Reach, there would be no Henley Royal Regatta – and the world would be poorer for it.

 

A JUXTAPOSITION OF TOWN AND COUNTRY

The all-encompassing Chiltern Hills give Henley a feeling of country living, while offering you a well-connected lifestyle. Approximately 8 miles northeast of Reading and 25 miles southeast of Oxford, Vicinia sits conveniently close to towns and cities for your commute or for a day out.


Vicinia also affords easy access to the M4 to the south and M40 to the north, making Henley a perfect base for travel or commuting. Whether you travel in to the capital for work or pleasure, London Paddington is under an hour away by train.
