Abingdon on Thames is so central for so many things. Only one hour from Heathrow, London’s major airport and one and a half hours from the port of Portsmouth we have easy access to the rest of Europe and the world. Many people from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, USA and South Africa use Abingdon as a base for tours of Britain and Europe.
The Thames Path runs through the town and the Ridgeway is just a few miles south. We are said to be the oldest continuously inhabited town in England and have buildings in daily use which are 800 years old as well as a town crier and ‘bun throwing’ to celebrate royal and major events. There are major MG car rallies held here as this is the home of the MG. Oxford can be reached on foot on the Thames Path, by boat up the Thames in the summer and by a brilliant bus service. Trains from nearby Didcot station take 40 minutes to get to London or there are buses throughout the day and night from Oxford to London.
