Why Chiltern Relocation loves Abingdon: This is a very popular family location due to the excellent recreational facilities on offer. Its proximity to the River Thames and Oxford make it a unique location where locals can enjoy the best of both worlds.

 

Abingdon is an attractive market town found 5 miles to the south of Oxford. It is moments from the River Thames and locals enjoy riverside walks and watching pleasure boats pass through Abingdon Lock – the oldest surviving lock chamber in the UK.

 

The County Hall Museum in the centre of town is famous for Bun Throwing – a 400 year-old tradition which is unique to Abingdon. This long-standing tradition of the town has local dignitaries throwing buns from the roof of the museum for crowds assembled in the market square on specific days of celebration (such as royal marriages, coronations and jubilees). The museum has a collection of the buns, dried and varnished, dating back to bun throwings of the 19th century.

 

The town has a bustling high street with a large Waitrose and many independent retailers. The Monday market has been in existence since 1556 and is still a popular draw today. It is held on a cobbled square where there are also cafes to sit and enjoy watching the world go by.

 

Living in Abingdon is popular with families working in central Oxford due to the excellent schooling options available.  Abingdon School for boys and St Helen & St Katherine for girls are very well regarded independent schools in the town.

 

Whether you’re a home owner searching for the perfect new home or a manager looking to relocate employees, we are committed to providing the best possible relocation service.

 

Serving the Abingdon area, we take a personal and flexible approach with all our clients, using our insider knowledge to ensure you have all the information you need whilst keeping the whole process straightforward and stress free.
