Circular Routes

The walking routes displayed here are Circular Routes. Unlike Linear walks, or "Slow Ways", Circular Walks finish back where they started...but because the walks are circular, you can of course start them from anywhere along the route.

We try hard to make sure that all our walking routes keep you away from traffic as much as possible and take you through all the most beautiful and interesting places around Henley-on-Thames.
