‘‘One of the most beautiful town centres of any market town’’

Abingdon has one of the most beautiful town centres of any market town in the country, with architecture as fine as any cathedral and a heritage equally rich, just a few minutes' walk from lovely rural scenery and riverside walks.

Enjoy a breakfast cup of coffee in the sunshine, to a delicious continental lunch in one of the cafes, shop ‘til you drop, and finish with some fine dining in one of the gastro-pubs. Abingdon will give you great tastes and great service whilst you explore the town, enjoy shopping again in boutiques stocking one-off pieces; knowing all the time you are in the heart of a real community, not a themed tourist town.

Uncover the watery history, which has lead to such impressive architecture. Take a leisurely stroll or bike ride along the Thames and enjoy views of traditional hand-painted narrow boats, brick built bridges and fast-flowing weirs.
