Out and about in Wallingford

Wallingford sits on the River Thames and was an old walled Saxon town with the remains of the original town walls still being visible today.

Wallingford Castle was built by William the Conqueror and was ordered to be demolished by Oliver Cromwell in 1652 and the remains can be seen from the Castle Gardens. The Town Hall was built in 1670 and here you can find the Town Plate and many portraits.

There is plenty to see and do out and about in Wallingford from walking through the parks and strolling by the River Thames with all its natural beauty or the quaint antique shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes together with the fine architecture of the town.

When you are out and about in Wallingford be sure to visit the farmerís market held in the Market Place and in Featherís Yard and make a note in your diary for the Pooh Sticks Championships at Days Lock in March and the annual Blues and Beer Festival held in early June.

Wallingford has something to please everyone, with only 15 miles to Oxford it is ideal to spend sometime getting to know this interesting town.
