About Us

We are Henley's only dedicated luxury concierge service delivering exceptional experiences in the Chilterns

Proudly based in Henley on Thames, we take comfort and influence from its rich heritage and traditional values.. Henley symbolises the special qualities of English life, and we're confident we've instilled this passion into what we offer.

Humphreys delivers the only "access all areas" pass to Henley and all of the fabulous events in and around the town.

Henley on Thames is acknowledged as one of the most beautiful towns in Britain, and even as one of the friendliest by the Daily Telegraph in September 2014. 

Experiencing, not just visiting, a destination is an increasing demand from travellers of all ages. We want to go behind the scenes, understand a little of what life is like and have an ‘access all areas’ pass usually reserved for well-connected and well-heeled residents. 

Humphreys of Henley delivers that ‘access all areas’ pass to a stunning part of the English countryside that has it all: history; celebrity; culture; Olympic legends; private islands; fine dining and the villages that play host to the deadliest and most loved English county, Midsomer. 

Humphreys of Henley enables guests to optimise every moment that they spend in this corner of Oxfordshire. We not only provide a complete luxury concierge service booking hotels, restaurants, cars etc, we create bespoke experiences focusing on the passions of our guests. If they want to immerse themselves in the history and culture they will take away with them all of the wondrous secrets behind the beautiful facades and a love of our life by the river; if they are excited by our sporting heritage we can take them rowing down the historical Royal Regatta reach, shooting in the rambling countryside or walking 18 holes on a world famous golf course. We want our guests to feel like members of this exclusive club that is Henley on Thames.

 

Sam was inspired to launch Humphreys of Henley by her love of this corner of Oxfordshire and her desire to share the hidden wonders that are normally missed by visitors. There are so many fabulous people delivering special opportunities in Henley and Sam and the Humphreys team work with the best to deliver the most memorable experiences for each and every guest. 

The official story of how our name came to be is that it was inspired by Humphrey Gainsborough, a former Henley on Thames resident in the 18th Century, who was responsible for some of the local architecture still visible today. His achievements include the lock, weir and footbridge at Marsh Lock, just upstream from Henley as well as Conway's Bridge linking the road between Henley and Wargrave, to name a couple. It is this fusion of design and functionality that we've instilled into our collection and everything we offer here at Humphreys.

There is an unofficial story behind the name too, and that's not to say the official version isn't true, but we thought we'd share this with you too, because we rather like it. Sam and her rather lively dog Humphrey have lived in Henley for many years. Once met Humphrey is never forgotten partly due to his size, and partly to do with his affectionate nature. Sam's love for Henley (and Humphrey) is reflected in everything offered here on this website, and so she felt obliged to offer the best of the best, to share the treasures of this beautiful quintessentially English market town and its surrounding countryside with everyone. We hope you enjoy everything on offer and hope to see you in Henley soon.
