Henley On Thames - Possibly one of the most picturesque and quaint parts of the River Thames is the stretch between Henley-on-Thames and Marlow.
It is possible to find a mooring for the night from between about £5 by a remote field and £9 near to the centre of Henley-on-Thames.
The trip between Henley-on-Thames and Marlow involves passing through several locks, which are usually serviced by volunteer lock keepers.
