Nestled in the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the town is dominated by its Grade I listed Town Hall and the market square where a weekly market is held.

Once one of the most important towns in the South East, Wallingford was granted a Royal Charter in 1155 and the town’s castle was one of the largest in England. The Castle Gardens, featuring crumbling ruins, ramparts and battlements, are one of the best places in the town to relax in. Today the town boasts an array of independent shops, bars and restaurants as well as a Waitrose supermarket and a Grade 2 listed Corn Exchange that provides a variety of theatre, cinema and live-screenings. The town is also home to a number of events throughout the year including Bunkfest, Rugfest and the Festival of Cycling as well as an Agatha Christie weekend to mark the world’s best selling author’s long association with the town. Both the Ridgeway and Thames Path run through the town and can be enjoyed by both foot or bike and boats trips are available on the River Thames. In the summer months visitors and residents alike can enjoy the town’s open-air swimming pool and splash park.
