Going to Henley is like being transported through a time warp! It’s a 4 day regatta that’s been going on for 200 years or something. We only stayed for 1 day to watch the races but we made the most of it. We took the train from London — only about 2 hours — and then walked straight to Red Lion and dropped off our stuff. The races were already going so we did the short walk to the regatta and stayed all day. We did dinner across the street at the Angel where there seemed to a never ending party! Tip: Make sure you bring appropriate attire to get into the Stewards Enclosure.
