About Fawley Meadows, Henley-on-Thames

Fawley Meadows in Henley-on-Thames is one of the four sections of riverbank available for boat moorings in Henley-on-Thames. It lies between Phyllis Court and Fawley Court and is ideal for those who like open space and perhaps to light barbecues. Mooring pins will be required.

Henley-on-Thames itself is still not too far away, probably a 15-20 minute walk away. Downstream stands Fawley Court, built by Sir Christopher Wren in 1684 for Colonel William Freeman. Like many buildings of a similar age, it has had a chequered history.

Fawley Meadows is often used to provide exclusive hospitality for the Henley Royal Regatta. Ideally situated along the picturesque riverbank it hosts an enticing array of features, including a riverboat cruise, private outdoor area, live entertainment. The Thames Traditional Boat Festival is also held there over one weekend in Summer.
