From Riverside Tranquility to the former home of Lord Nuffield founder of the Morris Motor Company
Journey down to Henley on Thames where there will be free time to get some lunch. Take a stroll around the town where you will find a number of independent shops, cafes and restaurants in the historic centre. The River and Rowing Museum, one of Britain's leading privately owned museums resides on the Riverside at the edge of the town. The waterfront is an attractive place to take a stroll probably most famous for world renowned Henley Regatta that takes place in early July.
In the afternoon we head out to Nuffield Place the former home of William Morris founder of the Morris Motor Company.
The house is typical of early 20th Century and is a lovely time capsule of how and what life would have been like during the mid 1930's through to when he died in 1963. It is full of Lord and Lady Nuffield's possessions including the slightly eccentric tool cupboard that resides in the bedroom. Reviews talk about the house being a place that feels lived in not grand but modest considering Lord Nuffield was at the time one of the richest men in England.
The garden takes on the look and feel of an Arts and Crafts style that was very fashionable in this period.
