Faringdon has panoramic views from its pretty perch on a golden limestone ridge between two beautiful river valleys, the Ock and the Thames. Its prominent position at the junction of ancient roads made it a historic centre for trade and travellers.
For centuries Faringdon's hotels have been welcoming visitors. It has an interesting variety of restaurants and shops and a small market on Tuesdays. The town makes a delightful holiday base for the threshold of the Cotswolds, with Oxford only a half-hour drive away. From Faringdon you can enjoy exploring four of England's most beautiful counties - Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.
The Faringdon Folly Tower, completed in 1935, has become a local landmark. It was the last folly to be built in England, commissioned by a charming eccentric, Lord Bernes. A few moments stroll from the centre of Faringdon leads to open fields and a network of footpaths. A short ride takes you to two national trails The Thames Path and the Ridgeway and a variety of themed walks, such as the Willow Walk. Population 6,000
