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.
During the English Civil War, Prince Rupert stayed in Henley over the Easter Weekend (1st & 2nd April) before heading towards Birmingham. His soldiers are said to have pillaged the local area during his stay. On Easter Monday (3rd April) a battle between the Royalist force led by Prince Rupert and a Parliamentary force occurred at Camp Hill, Birmingham.

In accordance with measures taken by the UK Government to reduce the risk of infection, it has been decided that the Heritage Centre will not open on the 1st April.
The Trust has an obligation to look after our volunteers, the majority of whom are classified as vulnerable, as well as visitors.
We will continue to review the situation but hope to open on the 1st May.
