The Centre

Located in the main High Street of this historic market town, the Heritage Centre is a museum of the town’s history from the Norman Conquest to the present day.

The Museum & Heritage Centre at Henley-in-Arden, near Stratford-upon-Avon, England is a unique facility made possible by the generosity of a former Lord of the Manor of Henley-in-Arden, Joseph Alexander Hardy of Pennsylvania and inaugurated by his daughter, Robin Hardy Freed, in November 1996.

Please take a look round our site. We look forward to welcoming you on a visit to the Centre very soon.
