The Henley-on-Thames Treasure Trail starts at:
We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.
Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

Before you set off on your awesome adventure, there are a few things you need to know...
The Trail is friendly to both wheelchairs and pushchairs, although the pavement narrows in a couple of places, so wheelchair users may need assistance.
Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that this is a busy town centre, so dogs will need to be kept on leads.
The closest long stay pay and display car parks to the Trail start point are at the Railway Station (RG9 1AY) and Mill Meadow (RG9 1BE), just a two minute walk away.
Mill Meadows, the park beside the Thames at the end of the Trail, is part of the flood plain of the River Thames, so it may be prone to flooding following extraordinary rainfall.
There are some fantastic events in Henley's calendar, from regular niche markets and the incredibly '80's Rewind festival to the legendary Henley Literary Festival and Royal Regatta. These are great occasions to visit this beautiful town; however, you may find that some of the clues on this Trail will become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Henley's Visitor Information.
There are public toilets available in the middle of the Trail (behind the regal cinema before the turning to New Street). There are many cafes, pubs and other eating establishments along the way. If the weather is nice, you may like to picnic at Mill or Marsh Meadows, where there is also plenty to keep the children occupied.
Why not make a day of it by visiting some of the fantastic local attractions along the way? The River and Rowing Museum located in Mill Meadows is open 10am to 5pm daily and is well worth a visit. You may also consider a boat trip along the Thames (there are several boat companies located near Mill Meadows at the end of the Trail).
