The Vale of White Horse's largest town and can be reached on foot from the Thames Path or by boat from the river. By road it is only 6 miles, 10 kilometres from Oxford. Abingdon is a lovely old Market Town, with continuous historical and archaeological connections. For centuries it was dominated by a great Benedictine Abbey, larger than Westminster Abbey is today. Sadly, the Abbey was destroyed by Henry VIII in 1538 following the dissolution of the monasteries. A few of the original buildings survive close to the river.
Abingdon has a wealth of architectural styles and offers an interesting variety of places to stay. It makes an excellent base for a holiday, a short break or a day out. With riverside parks, gardens and a choice of leisure facilities including tennis, swimming, boating, fishing, waterside pubs and a Monday market.
Abingdon's intriguing museum is housed in an elegant building with stunning roof top views over Abingdon and beyond. It was built as the County Assize Court and Market House between 1678 and 1682 by Christopher Kempster, a master mason who had worked for Sir Christopher Wren on St. Paul's Cathedral.
