The road between Henley and Wallingford passes the village. It was made into a turnpike in 1736 and ceased to be a turnpike in 1873. It is now classified the A4130.

The village has a public house, The Golden Ball, that is now a gastropub.

Henley Park is just east of the village. It was a medieval deer park and in 1300 became part of the manor of Henley. In the Georgian era the park was converted into a landscape garden with "beautiful inclosures descending in natural waving slopes from the house."

Fairmile Cemetery, on a hillside southwest of the village, belongs to Henley Town Council.
