Summer In Abingdon

Welcome to Abingdon

Dating back to before the Iron Age, Abingdon is England’s oldest, continuously occupied town. Steeped in history and tradition, this market town boasts genuine community spirit, and a range of activities to suit all ages. 

Witness one of our living traditions, taste something new at one of our markets, dance with our Morris dancers, or if you’re lucky take part in our bun-throwing, a tradition on special Royal occassions  that dates back to 1760.

Join us for guided walks around the ancient streets, enjoy a picnic on the beautiful riverside, visit the roof of the Town Hall for breath-taking views across the Oxfordshire countryside and River Thames, celebrate at the Michaelmas Fair or share a special day with the family at Abingdon Museum.

Abingdon boasts a range of places to eat and drink with differing cuisines, and a great selection of high-quality accommodation to ensure you’re well looked after during your stay.

Here you will find all the information you will need for your visit. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
