Melody House is set off Greys Road, on the edge of Henley-on-Thames. The town has a wide range of local facilities, such as restaurants, shops, a cinema, theatre and local library. There is a weekly market in the Town Square and a monthly Farmer's market. The River Thames is a familiar feature of the town and supports a variety of rowing clubs, plus the annual Royal Regatta. The annual Music Festival, held after the Regatta, is a big draw, together with the Rewind Festival later in the summer.
