Evidence suggests that people have inhabited the region surrounding Abingdon since the Iron Age. By 676 CE, the local Abbey had been established, with this now-flourishing settlement emerging alongside it.
During the 13th and 14th centuries, the town became an agricultural hub. Around 200 years later, Abingdon continued its development despite the dissolution of its namesake Christian community.
The arrival of the railway in 1856 saw tourism take a leading role in this town’s expansion. Indeed, little has changed today, with several Afternoon Tea Abingdon-on-Thames establishments well worth visiting. Why not find out for yourself?
