Faringdon is an adorable historic market town 18 miles southwest of Oxford, at the edge of the Cotswolds midway between Oxford and Swindon.
The town centre of Faringdon is divided into two separate – the Market Place (which surrounds the Market Hall and extends up Church Street as far as the corner at the church) and Cornmarket (a smaller area in front of the Corn Exchange).
There’s a weekly market on Tuesdays and Saturdays in the Market Square, and a monthly Farmers’ Market is held on the first Tuesday to complement the weekly market on those days.
There are 2 car parks in Faringdon, both in easy walking distance from Market Place, both offering 2 hours free parking.
These car parks are open 24 hours a day and chargeable Monday to Saturday (including bank holidays) from 8.00am until 6.00pm. Free on Sundays. A valid ticket must be displayed at all times during the charging period – including for the free two hours.
Disabled badge holders can park free of charge (unlimited time limit), providing they display their badge. If all disabled bays are full, a standard bay may be used.
