It’s easy to see why, with delightful winding streets, leafy gardens, historic houses, this is picture postcard Britain, just on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds.
Kidlington has a small shopping centre which features some great independent shops. There is a leisure centre with a gym, swimming pool, sports hall and fitness classes. Between 9am and 4pm the high street holds a very popular market with all kinds of goods and tasty treats. There are a number of spots for fishing, riding centres and several golf clubs in the area.
