Directions to Rotherfield Hall

Postcode: RG9 1TY

Rotherfield Hall of Henley College can be found from the centre of Henley by going up Gravel Hill, behind the Town Hall.

Take the first left into Deanfield Avenue (opposite the late George Harrison's 'Friar Park'). Just as the road drops downhill to the left, turn right up a narrow driveway called Paradise Road. Follow this up to the top of the hill, and park.

The Hall is accessed through the main red brick building on the left.
