Why Chiltern Relocation loves Thame: The feeling of being in a rural location but with the wealth of facilities and amenities on offer make Thame a real draw. Situated just 20 minutes from Oxford and from Aylesbury it’s not surprising that’s its enviable location is why so many families are keen to move to the area.


Thame is located in the heart of the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) midway between Oxford and Aylesbury in the county of Oxfordshire. Thame is becoming an increasingly popular destination with those wanting value for money within easy commuting distance of London with journey times of just 43 minutes into London Marylebone. Thame is a semi-rural market town with a wide range of High Street shops including Waitrose, an award winning butchers and a bustling boat shaped market place. Here there is a very popular street market every Tuesday, a monthly farmers market and a weekly cattle market.


The wide main street includes houses and inns dating from the 15th century and the grammar school, Lord Williams’s dating back from the 16th century. Visitors may recognise Thame as Causton the fictional town in Midsomer’s Murders.


There are many social and sporting facilities on offer with the Thame Players Theatre and the Thame Leisure Centre. Thame is very popular with cycle clubs keen to tackle the local hills and cycle ways.


Schooling is excellent with a wide range of options available at primary and secondary level.
