Walks from Henley-in-Arden

Henley-in-Arden is a beautiful place to walk from. It’s the perfect location to start and finish with maybe a picnic to take with you or a pub lunch or dinner to feast on upon your return. Even a bag of fish ‘n’ chips to take up the Mount is a great idea on a breezy day. Just remember to bring your litter back down! 

 The Millennium Way passes through our lovely town.  One of the favourites, the circular walk that takes in part of the Millennium Way, is illustrated here. You can find full details of the walks on the official site Millennium Way. You will also find QR CODES around our town that also take you to more walks. We also love VIEWRANGER where you can download the app or routes via your computer and find plenty of great walks in and around the area. You will also find cycle routes. .
