Things to do
From Eton College to Windsor Castle, Marlow is surrounded by historic buildings that are well worth a visit. Be sure to stop by Hughenden, once the home of British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli – it’s a marvellously preserved Victorian manor house.
Situated right on the River Thames, Marlow is the perfect setting for a regatta. So it’s no wonder the locals organise two each year. Held in June, the Marlow Town Regatta is for novices, while the International Regatta now takes place on Dorney Lake – a 2012 Olympic venue.
The Hand and Flowers in Marlow won fame as the first UK gastro pub to win two Michelin stars. If you’re hoping for fine dining, be sure to book ahead, and sample the locally brewed beer too.
