Wantage started as a Roman settlement before becoming the birthplace of King Alfred the Great in 849. Records of it exist in the Domesday Book of 1086. Centuries later, during the English Civil War, Royalist troops were stationed here.

By the 1800s, Lord Wantage, a founding member of the British Red Cross Society, played a significant role in the area’s development. Today, stopping in an Afternoon Tea Wantage establishment is an excellent choice. Why not find out for yourself? You won’t regret it!
