It’s always the quiet ones. Anyone passing through Abingdon would not suspect the incredible history that lies behind this wonderfully/surprisingly quirky town. From the “I can’t believe it!” history of intrigue, betrayal, rabble rousing and rebellion, to the quietly innovative town of today, Abingdon does like to be different. So, while you will find the big chain stores, there are also new and exciting local shops taking back the high street while helping the environment and supporting other local commerce and services.
There are two golf courses within 10 minutes of Abingdon. There is also a rowing club, paddling club, three good parks including the Meadows, Abingdon Park and Abbey Gardens plus a leisure centre, swimming pool, cycles lanes and plenty of open space. History buffs can check out Abingdon Museum. Foodies will find a great selection of restaurants and cafes plus food events throughout the year.
20 minutes from the M4 and just 7 minutes from the historic city of Oxford, Abingdon lies on the A34 that runs from Newbury to Bicester. There is no train station but regular buses run to Oxford which is also home to the nearest airport.
