Henlow is a village and civil parish in the district of Central Bedfordshire in Bedfordshire, England.

RAF Henlow, is located nearby, but is in fact nearer to the village of Stondon. There is a well-known health farm in Henlow at Henlow Grange, part of the Champneys group.

There are several theories as to the origin of the name Henlow. "Henna hlaw" is one, meaning in old English "Hill of birds". "Hlow" was also sometimes used to indicate a burial place.

The Parish church, parts of which are 13th century, is dedicated to St Mary the Virgin.
