Our first day in Henley-on Thames was a pleasant day, with partly cloudy skies and temperatures approaching more like summers norms. Based of the summer weather, to date, this was probably going to be our best day in Henley, so we elected to explore the town, and take a short cruise on the River Thames.
Departing the Lake District, we headed over to the M6, turning south towards our next destination, Henley-on-Thames, home of the world famous Henley Regatta. Unfortunately the regatta was early July and we were visiting in August. During our 2 days in Henley, we planned to visit Windsor Castle & Runnymede, where the Magna Carta was signed, and take a cruise along the River Thames.
