Pictures of Abingdon
a Historic Market Town in the county of Oxfordshire
There are delightful riverside walks with the river being a focal point for recreational activities such as boating and fishing. From the comfort of a pleasure cruiser visitors can enjoy splendid river-scapes, river wildlife and good views of the town.
In medieval times the town prospered from the wool trade but in recent times the fortunes of the town have been dependent on the car industry. Printing and brewing play a major part in the town's economy along with other hi-tech industries.
In the pleasant Oxfordshire countryside surrounding the town farms and agriculture continue to flourish.
Hotels, inns and restaurants are plentiful. This handsome town has much to interest and excite the visitor. It makes an ideal base from which to explore rural Oxfordshire.
