This town finds itself within the historic boundaries of Berkshire, of which it was an ‘official’ part of until 1974. It lies some 18 miles from Oxford, 12 miles from Swindon and 10 miles from Wantage. The name “Faringdon”, translated from Old English, means “fern covered hill”.

In 1218, Faringdon was granted a weekly market – a tradition that it has since maintained over several centuries. Why not spend some time looking around before stopping in an Afternoon Tea Faringdon venue for lunch?
