Beyond Abingdon-On-Thames

Beyond Abingdon-On-Thames

Beyond the quiet rhythm of the upper Thames lie the lively destinations of Oxford, Birmingham, Bristol, Reading and Stratford upon Avon, providing a wealth of culture and entertainment – all within easy reach.

As centre for the traveller, Abingdon-on-Thames is a great base – relaxing and easily accessible. For business, it’s well placed amongst the growing science, technology and knowledge-based activities of the regions.

Oxford is on the doorstep within easy reach by car, bus, bike or relaxing river walk. There is a regular passenger boat between Oxford and Abingdon from May to September taking you from the heart of the town to the heart of the ‘dreaming spires’.

You’ll see other river users from the local boatclubs and pleasure cruisers can be hired from the marina close to the Old Gaol. The Old Gaol’s jetty is open to residents so boats can be moored in view of your apartment.

As the iconic River Thames flows by, remember this is the waterway beloved by Olympic oarsmen, world-class anglers, famous authors and those just to be happy splashing around or strolling the banks.
