    5 Quickfire Henley-on-Thames Facts

    1. The Regatta
      Henley Royal Regatta is possibly the most famous (and certainly poshest) regatta in the world. Crowds line the river in traditional wear including straw boaters and Panama hats to watch the 300+ races taking place. Champagne and strawberries are very much par for the 550 yard course, along with jazz bands, Pimms and picnic hampers, as up to 90 races take place each day.
    2. Why Royal?
      The regatta wasn’t always royal, it wasn’t even a regatta. The event started in 1839 as a fun day thrown by the town’s mayor, with a funfair, food sellers, music and dancing. It was a few years later that amateur rowing races were introduced. In 1851 Prince Albert came along, liked what he saw and returned every year. Since then, the reigning monarch has always been made the patron of the event.
    3. Best Dressed
      If you’re attending the regatta there are strict dress codes for areas like the Steward’s Enclosure where ladies are not allowed to wear trousers and men must wear ties or cravats and hats. In 1976 temperatures reached a sweltering 92°F and men were actually permitted to remove their jackets! Steady on chaps!!
    4. Isn’t That Thingummy-bob?
      Henley has had plenty of famous faces living in its leafy avenues. Philip Schofield (TV presenter), Liam Gallagher (musician), Orlando Bloom (actor), George Orwell (author), Russell Brand (comedian), Mary Berry (national treasure) and Boris Johnson (other), have all made Henley their home.
    5. Bit Of Wisdom
      Homeless and hungry, a young Norman Wisdom was turned down for a job at Henley pub because he was ‘too small’. Wisdom joined the army instead and found a talent for making people laugh. He went on to become the biggest star of his day, and the great Charlie Chaplin referred to Norman as his ‘favourite clown’.

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    Early Days

    Over's Removals

    The first written record of Henley dates to 1179, when King Henry II “had bought land for the making of buildings”. Evidence has been discovered of earlier Romano-British settlers in the area (although these earlier settlers didn’t think of setting up rowing races).

    13th Century

    The town’s popular market can be traced back to 1269 when Henley was granted license to hold a market by King John, not the most popular royal, he wasn’t the last to influence Henley’s fortunes.

    14th Century

    Henley’s oldest building is the Old Bell in Bell Street, built in 1325. Around 1350 the Great Plague hit the town, killing around 60% of the population.

    17th Century

    You say you want a revolution? George Harrison was one prominent figure to have lived in Henley. King Charles I had stayed in the town in 1638 and came back again in 1642 during the English Civil War. Although things didn’t end well for Charles, after the restoration another would-be King, William of Orange, passed through during his Glorious Revolution. But neither king produced such catchy tunes as the Beatles guitarist.

    During the Civil War, the town’s sympathies (and that of some of it’s more prominent citizens) lay with the Parliamentarians. Henley’s position, on the bank of the Thames, leading to the Royalist stronghold of Oxford made it strategically important. Royalist troops did manage to pass through the town, taking provisions to the King’s army. In January 1643 royalist soldiers were advancing up Duke Street when they were fired upon by Parliamentarian cannons and killed. King Charles returned one last time in 1947 on his way to stand trial in London where he quite literally lost his head!

    Nearby Greenlands House also suffered during the conflict, having been built by Thomas Chaucer (son of Geoffrey Chaucer, author of The Canterbury Tales), during the Civil War it was owned by John d’Oyley a Royalist sympathiser and as a result was besieged and mostly destroyed.

    18th Century

    The town’s distinctive five arched bridge opened in 1786 bringing more trade through the town and raising its prominence and fortunes. But it was 50 years later that during a public meeting in 1839 Captain Edmund Gardiner proposed a regatta be held ‘under judicious and respectable management’. He maintained that as well as bringing trade to the town, ‘from its peculiar attractions it would also be a source of amusement and gratification to the neighbourhood and the public in general’.

    Over's Truck

    19th Century

    It was the attendance of Prince Albert (Queen Victoria’s consort) in 1851 that the rowing event gained its Royal patronage. It is now one of the biggest events on the royal circuit. Henley remains a town that embraces both its traditions and history while being a funky artisan town with cute quirks, great food and some fantastic watering holes.
