Wallingford is a Thames-side town that blends historic charm with modern amenities. At its market centre, a vibrant mix of independent retailers can be found alongside pavement cafes and antique shops. Other local treasures include the weekly and monthly markets, and The Corn Exchange theatre.

For newcomers to the area, the town is made even more appealing given the beauty of its surrounding greenery. Wallingford’s quintessential English countryside was made famous by the TV series Midsomer Murders, which was filmed here.

Situated on the Thames Path and close to the Ridgeway, these scenic open spaces are best explored on foot. Many visitors come to walk the Agatha Christie Trail, which stops at the writer’s former house and final resting place in Cholsey. The Wallingford Castle Meadows is another tourist trap, not to mention the outdoor heated pool that sits adjacent to Wallingford Bridge. Both are just as popular with residents, especially during the summer months.

While there are few reasons to leave Wallingford, those commuting have impressive transport links nearby connecting to Oxford and central London. Coupled with local schools and an abundance of property types, this area attracts a diverse population of both young and old.


Transportation in Wallingford 

The closest train station is two miles south of Wallingford in the picturesque village of Cholsey. Frequent services travel between here and London Paddington, as well as Reading and Oxford. Other major services can be found at Didcot Parkway, which is just a 12-minute drive away. From here, trains connect to the capital, the West Country and Wales.

Wallingford is surrounded by the M40, M4 and A34. This offers convenience for those travelling by car: central Oxford can be reached in 33 minutes, and Reading in 24 minutes. Heathrow is the closest international airport, taking approximately 46 minutes via the M40.

Things to do in Wallingford

Whether it’s the outdoor pursuits, historic treasures or family-friendly fun, Wallingford boasts an exciting mix of attractions. Here are just a few of the highlights:

  • Wallingford Castle
  • The Corn Exchange
  • St Mary the Virgin Church
  • Charter Market
  • Brightwell Vineyard
  • Cholsey Tennis Club
  • Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary
  • The Springs Gold Club
  • Wallingford Sports Park
  • Wallingford Museum
  • Cholsey-Wallingford Railway
  • Farmers’ Market

What is Wallingford Like?

If Wallingford seems familiar to you, perhaps you’ve watched Midsomer Murders; the famous TV series was filmed here! 

Agatha Christie called Wallingford home for over 40 years, so the town is steeped in Christie culture. The Wallingford Museum has a permanent Agatha Christie exhibition, and the novelist was buried in the nearby Churchyard of St Mary’s in Cholsey. And, of course, you’ll likely spot many a filming location as you wander the streets of Wallingford. 

There’s plenty of heritage beyond Christie, and Wallingford is also blessed with an abundance of green spaces, with the Castle Gardens, Bull Croft, and Kinecroft offering beautiful spaces to wander, play, and relax. 

Highlights of Wallingford include: 

  • The Castle Gardens, Bull Croft, and Kinecroft are just a few of the beautiful green spaces in Wallingford.  
  • The Grade II listed Corn Exchange now serves as a state-of-the-art 175-seat theatre and cinema. 
  • Car lovers will adore the The Aston Martin Heritage Trust, and train lovers will appreciate the  Cholsey & Wallingford railway, both love letters to the heritage of travel. 
  • Shoppers will love the four markets to be found in Wallingford! 

Transport Links

Wallingford is nestled between the M40, the M4, and the A34, putting a great deal of the country within easy reach. Oxford is a mere 33 minutes away, and Reading just 24 minutes by car. The M40 also provides a straightforward route to Heathrow Airport in just over 45 minutes. 

If you’re looking to travel by rail, the nearest train station is two miles south in the village of Cholsey. From there, you can catch a train to London Paddington and arrive in under 90 minutes. You can also travel to Reading in 25 minutes. 

Didcot Parkway is another nearby railway station that can take you to Bath in 40 minutes, Bristol in 55 minutes, and Oxford in as little as 12 minutes. 

Schools in the Area

There are plenty of excellent schools in Wallingford, making it a fantastic place for parents to raise their children. 

Parents of younger children will be pleased that nearly every school in the area has been rated ‘good’ by Ofsted. Schools like St John’s Primary School have been praised for how “pupils make good progress from their starting points because work is well matched to their needs.” Ofsted also praised Fir Tree Junior School for that fact “books are everywhere…and pupils value the very well-stocked library” and Crowmarsh Gifford Church of England School as “there is much good teaching which enables pupils to make good progress.” 

At a secondary level, parents can rest easy with their children attending the Wallingford School. Rated overall ‘good’ by Ofsted, the school was found to be ‘outstanding’ in a number of areas, including the quality of teaching. “Teachers use their knowledge and skills highly effectively to structure learning that enables pupils to make increasingly good progress over time.” 

Looking beyond school, Wallingford benefits from its proximity to both Oxford and Reading, putting prestigious universities within easy reach of its young residents. 

Attractions in Wallingford

Thanks in part to its starting role in Midsomer Murders, there are plenty of walking trails that lead you through and around the history of Wallingford. The Agatha Christie Trail, for example, takes in places linked to the writer including the home she lived in and her grave. The Midsomer Murders trail takes you on a circuit of filming locations. And the Wallingford Museum features a permanent Agatha Christie exhibition alongside local history exhibits. 

History buffs and car lovers alike will love The Aston Martin Heritage Trust, which preserves an enormous collection of Aston Martin cars and artefacts spanning 100 years. The museum features a rotating display of 7 classic cars, often including the A3, the oldest surviving Aston Martin in the World. There’s also scale models, trophies, engines, racing memorabilia, and even engineering tools to examine on your visit! 

From cars to railways, a visit to Cholsey & Wallingford railway will see you enjoying a ride on 1950s carriages hauled by a lovingly restored diesel locomotive or a visiting steam engine. The 45-minute journey rolls through the beautiful countryside past landmarks such as Cholsey Church, before stopping at Cholsey’s main railway station. There are even Evening Dining Trains for a special occasion, and a ‘Polar Express’ too! 

One of the biggest landmarks in Wallingford is the Castle Gardens & Meadows. The rolling green mounds once laid beneath one of the strongest and most important castles in England until it fell into disuse, disrepair, and was finally demolished at the order of Oliver Cromwell. Now the site is a peaceful garden that’s perfect for a relaxed stroll, featuring gardens that explode with colour in the summer and wildlife areas that support wildflowers and butterflies. 

When you’re in the mood for some unique retail therapy, Wallingford offers four regular markets! Food lovers should head to the Charter Market every Friday for anything from eggs to bread, fruit to veg. The Local Producers Market on Saturdays is the place for cheese, cakes and bakes, while the Country Market (also on Fridays) offers more baked goods, homemade preserves, and plants and crafts. The Independent Market offers a little of everything, and is held on the first and fifth Saturday of the month. 

Bars, Restaurants and Nightlife 

Wallingford offers an unrivalled range of places to eat, drink, or simply enjoy an evening’s entertainment. 

For a truly superb meal, head to Le Clos on St Mary’s Street. This wine bar serves the highest quality food, from Parma ham from Italy to duck rillettes from France, tarte flambée to black tiger prawns. And it’s all accompanied by a staggeringly diverse wine list, incorporating the best from France, Spain, Italy, and even further afield. A trip to Le Clos is a real treat for both visitors and locals! 

When you’re in the mood for Italian, you can’t go wrong with Avanti. It’s a restaurant popular with residents for the welcoming service and the accommodating owner, not to mention the incredible food. The menu is filled with authentic pastas, pizzas, and classic Italian dishes, served with a smile in a friendly atmosphere. You’ll definitely want to return again and again. 

Home Sweet Home calls itself a real country pub. With its open fires, exposed stone walls, and beautiful wooden floors, you can see why. This cosy pub is perfect for a drink with friends or family; on top of the huge variety of beers, wines, and spirits, the pub also sources cask ales from a family-owned brewery. If you’re hungry, the menu is filled with amazing dishes made with locally-sourced ingredients too. 

The Chequers Inn is another beautiful British pub, with open fires and a welcoming staff making your visit pleasant from start to finish. The owners used to work for Carluccio’s, so it’s no surprise that food plays a big role at the Chequers. This is not your average pub food, instead featuring venison, double-baked gruyere souffle, and pheasant and pear sausages. Unsurprisingly, there’s a stellar wine list too, as well as a range of excellent beers and spirits too. You’ll remember a night at the Chequers Inn! 

You’re bound to find something your tastes at the old Corn Exchange, a Grade II listed building since converted into a 175-seat theatre and cinema. State-of-the-art technology brings the latest films to your seat, and the stage itself hosts drama, ballet, comedy, and even opera! Unsurprisingly, there’s an Agatha Christie connection too: Christie served as president of the Sinodun Players who operate the theatre, and the building itself doubles as the Causton Playhouse in Midsomer Murders! 

Leisure Centres and Outdoor Activities 

When you want to get your heart rate up, there are plenty of options in Wallingford. 

Wallingford Sports Park is a well-equipped facility offering three football pitches, five rugby pitches, five tennis courts, an archery range. And that’s just the outdoors! Inside you’ll find three squash courts, two halls that can be hired out for conferences, weddings, or parties, and even two dart boards. The excellent facilities have attracted eight local sports clubs, from rugby to tennis, squash to archery. All welcome members of all abilities, making the Sports Park your go-to for getting active. 

Wallingford School’s leisure centre naturally prioritises the needs of the pupils during school hours, but is available to hire at other times. And it’s a hive of activity, with a number of clubs that you can join. Whether badminton is your game, karate your passion, or even if you want to try some belly dancing, taking a look at the leisure centre’s schedule is an excellent way of finding a club that will get you moving! 

133 acres of stunning parkland resting at the side of the Thames is the setting for the Springs Resort & Golf Club. The course you’ll see today was designed by former Ryder Cup captain Brian Huggett and course architect Tim Lobb, and offers 18 holes that will test your skills against a backdrop of gently rolling hills bordered with lush trees and beautiful bodies of water. Once you’ve worked up your appetite on the green, you can dine on the excellent food at the clubhouse, or even head to the swing studios to practice your game for the next round. 

History of Wallingford

The ruins of Wallingford Castle provide an insight into the area’s regal past. This stronghold shaped the town’s history for over 600 years, when royal opulence gave way to civil unrest, leading to its eventual demise during the Black Death. Although little remains of the castle, the surrounding gardens are still enjoyed by visitors and residents alike.

Following the castle’s demolition, Wallingford became better known for its market town character. Thanks to its proximity to the Thames, the area prospered during the Middle Ages as a trading destination. Several weekly markets keep that heritage alive today, allowing residents to buy everything from hand-crafted goods to locally sourced produce.
