About Wallingford

Welcome to the Wallingford edition of The Oxford Magazine.

Wallingford is a historic market town and civil parish located to the south of Oxford on the River Thames in England. Historically located in the county of Berkshire, it moved to Oxfordshire in 1974 as a result of the 1972 Local Government Act.

Everything you could need in Wallingford is on hand at the town’s marketplace; this is where you’ll find the town’s most memorable landmarks, like the neoclassical Corn Exchange, the glorious arcaded town hall from the 1600s and the Norman church of St Mary-le-More.

You can also enjoy the town’s heritage trail which touches on the Saxon era when the town was a vital fortification for Alfred the Great. And there’s Wallingford Castle, built by the Normans, it was one of the south’s most powerful strongholds until it was torn down in the Civil War and left as the delicate crumbling ruin that remains today.
