Henley Days – Boats, Bicycles and Buggies

It is all about the transport it would appear.  Boats, bicycles and buggies.

Henley On Thames is one of those rare places that has just a little sprinkle of magic about it. It is the sort of place where childhood dreams of talking animals and fairy woodlands might just (if you wiggle your nose and flutter your eyelashes) come true. There is more than a hint of fine English eccentricity woven deep into the fabric of the place. Don’t even get me started on the bliss of days spent drifting along the Thames in a little wooden boat, laden with a delicious feast of storybook proportions and a bottle (or two) of icy pink fizz.

In this series, I hope to show you a little slice of life in this gorgeous English town. (For more images in this series then why pop over to my Henley Days page)

For more of my work then why not have a gander at my Etsy shop?

  1. I seriously think you should work for the Henly Tourist Office and be responsible for PR 🙂 Every picture you share about this place makes me want to visit so much!

  2. The background being out of focus got the imagination going. I thought maybe the person getting off the boat was a busker dancing a jig and everyone standing around watching the boat was their audience.

      1. “You can always tell the old river hand by the way in which he stretches himself out upon the cushions at the bottom of the boat, and encourages the rowers by telling them anecdotes about the marvellous feats he performed last season.”
        ― Jerome K. Jerome, Three Men in a Boat
        Wonderful picture by the way !
