The Oxfordshire region
Steeped in history, rich in heritage and awash with natural beauty, the Oxfordshire Cotswolds is a charming blend of bustling market towns, breathtaking natural scenery and over 6000 years of history.
This is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, which along with the 'gentle' rolling hills, means its great walking, cycling or horse riding country. There are miles of wonderful way-marked routes for day long expeditions or gentle afternoon ambles.
A prime central location means the area is ideal as a base from which to explore nearby landmark towns, cities and attractions too. Oxford, City of dreaming spires, lies just a few miles east, perfect for a touch of cosmopolitan city culture! To the west, down the Roman Fosse Way, are Gloucestershire's golden stone villages, the market towns of Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold and the larger Spa towns of Cheltenham and Bath. Venture a few miles north to Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare and medieval Warwick and to the south, the winding River Thames as it meanders from its source in nearby Lechlade, onwards to London.
Thame is ideally situated to discover the beauty and tranquillity of the Thames and Chiltern area. To the South of Thame are the Chiltern Hills and The Ridgeway Path, with many public walkways where outstanding views of the surrounding area can be enjoyed. Explore the delightful gardens at Waterperry with its house, formal and informal gardens and tea rooms just to thc north of Thame. The Oxfordshire way and cycleway meander through the countryside to the west of Thame and to the east is the larger market town of Aylesbury.
Thame itself is a bustliug market town with a large boat shaped- market place. There is a twice weekly cattle market and a very popular street market every Tuesday.
In Thame there are many historic sites including the original interior wall of the Greyhound Inn where John Hampden died of his wounds that he received at the battle of Chalgrove Field. The spectacular 13th Century Church of St Mary's dominates the skyline and is open to the public most days. Just a short stroll from the church is the Bandstand which came from the Wembley exhibition in 1921. The Birdcage Inn was built in the 15th Century and has housed prisoners awaiting trial.
In Thame today you can sample the delicacies at Newitt's award winning Butcher's, Pick up a bargain at the Tuesday market, Shop in the specialist shops, See a performance at the Thame Players Theatre or the Thame Leisure Centre, Take a walk on one of three Thame circular walks, Have a picnic at the Cuttlebrook Nature Reserve, Or just call into one of many tea rooms, public houses or restaurants, relax have a meal and plan a visits to one of the many other attraction in the area.
