The Planet Organic Guide to Henley-on-Thames

The Planet Organic Guide to Henley-on-Thames

Hello Henley! On 28 October we opened the doors to our first store outside of London, in Henley-on-Thames historic Market Place. Spoiler: it may be our favourite yet. Henley locals can now join us in a new discovery hub of fresh produce, with our favourite brands and of course delicious coffee and smoothies.

To celebrate our grand opening, we asked local experts their favourite places to go in this beautiful historic town, Planet Organic coffee in hand of course.

Henley Market Square

This historic square isn't only the location of our brand new store, you'll also find the famous Henley Farmer’s Market on the second Saturday and fourth Thursday of the month. It’s also suitably picturesque and filled with a range of beautiful shop fronts, delicious restaurants and bars.

The Old Fire Station Gallery

Henley is a hub for beautiful art galleries, though we love The Old Fire Station Gallery, a converted fire station. From paintings, to sculptures, tapestries and photography – head here for a dose of culture and to discover local art. 

Hart and Bell Street

Home to several of the most picturesque store fronts in town including The Bell Bookshop, which dates back to the 18th century as Henley’s ‘oldest and friendliest’ bookshop. We also love admiring the blooms at Henley Florist and Flower School, which has some of the most beautiful displays in town. If you have a little one in tow, the locally famous Bagatelle toy shop is another must visit.  

The River Thames

If you’re in Henley on a sunny day, we recommend taking a trip down to the river. The famous setting of the Henley Royal Regatta, head here for stunning views and to watch the boats go by (you can even rent one). If you love exploring, take a stroll across the historic bridge and turn left towards the world-renowned Leander Rowing Club, where rowers including Sir Steve Redgrave have trained.

Mill Meadows

One of our favourite parts of town, Mill Meadows is perfect for dog spotting. Located with unbeatable views of the River Thames and lots of swans and ducks to feed, this is the place to be on a sunny day. If you’ve got kids in tow, the adventure playground is guaranteed to win you parent points, plus the walk to Marsh Meadows is a lot of fun if you have time (and suitable footwear). If it’s raining, head to The River and Rowing Museum to check out the famous Wind in the Willows exhibition, which you can visit year round.

We can’t wait to see you in-store at 16 Market Place from 28 October. Please click here to find out more.
