The History


Steeped in history, Denmark House is named after George of Denmark, Queen Anne’s consort. He stayed here in the early 18th century soon after the house was built as an extension to the Bell Coaching Inn.


In 1642, during the Civil War; Prince Rupert used the Bell Inn as headquarters and is said to have had a spy hanged on the elm tree which stood in front of the house until 1995. A portion of the tree can be seen in the River and Rowing Museum in Henley. The beautiful Georgian architecture of the house provides spacious, light, elegant rooms.


The central location of Denmark House makes it ideal for a short stroll into the town where a number of bars, restaurants and shops are located. Henley also boasts the world famous Henley Regatta, The Henley Festival, The River Rowing Museum, a cinema, theatre, and wonderful picturesque walks along the Thames.
