Shiplake is a rural village and civil parish on the River Thames situated 2.3 miles (3.7 km) south of Henley on Thames in Oxfordshire, England. The main road from Henley to Reading, Berkshire, 4 miles (6.4 km) to the south-west, passes the edge of the village. Since 1974 the civil parish has been part of the South Oxfordshire District. The UK census of 2011 reported the population as 1,954.
The parish church is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul.
In 1773 the Thames Navigation Commission built Shiplake Lock on the River Thames about half a mile (800 m) downriver from the main village. In 1857 the Great Western Railway opened a branch line between Twyford and Henley-on-Thames, crossing the Thames on Shiplake Railway Bridge, about 300 yards (270 m) downstream from Shiplake Lock. The GWR built Shiplake railway station at Lower Shiplake, 1 mile (1.6 km) northwest of the main village. Lower Shiplake has since grown into the largest settlement within the parish.
In 1889 the author Jerome K. Jerome featured the village in his novel Three Men in a Boat.
In 2003 the village of Binfield Heath and hamlet of Crowsley, both originally in the parish of Shiplake, separated from it to form the newly-created civil parish of "Binfield Heath".
