Wallingford is a beautiful village situated on the River Thames between Oxford and Reading, with a distinctive old market town character. Dating back to the Saxon age, the area is surrounded by history, from the ruins of Royal Wallingford Castle and the excellently preserved Dorchester Abbey, to the home of Agatha Christie and the location of many a Midsomer Murder.
House prices in Wallingford are indicative of its location and desirability. South Oxfordshire is often named as Britain’s top region to live with four of the best villages for London commuters located between Reading and Oxford. The nearby station of Cholsey provides a fast rail service to Oxford, Reading and London Paddington.
While the area is extremely popular among working professionals commuting to the capital, it attracts people of all ages - a vibrant market town with plenty of outdoor pursuit options along the river and up into the Chilterns.
Central Wallingford can be dated back as far as the 12th century, meaning there are many older, historic properties on the market. But the town has also grown over the years and now has several new homes for sale in housing developments within easy walking distance of the town centre.
