Abingdon Visitor and Community Information Centre

Abingdon-on-Thames Visitor and Community Information Centre is currently located in the historic grade one listed County Hall Museum in the first floor Sessions Gallery.  Due to the Museum being closed from Christmas Day until 2nd January this year we apologise for being closed. There will be a small amount of information available when St Nicolas Church on Market Place is open, mainly mornings.

Information staff are dedicated to providing information on the town. They have general knowledge as well as information on the more unusual things to see and do. Find out about town services, town and local events, and learn about the surrounding region. Call in to ask about travel, things to do, places to stay, where to eat and drink in and around the town. Pick up a map or a guide - these are also on this website for a quick download.  Assistance is given to individuals and families who live in the town, visitors, tourists to our beautiful region, coach drivers and people planning trips. 

We can also respond to requests for information via info@abingdon.gov.uk for instance to send a visitor suggestions on places to visit in any particular month.

Please note opening times are 10.00 am to 3.00 pm Tuesday to Saturday please check before travelling or coming specially. 

Abingdon County Hall Museum itself is open six days including Sundays (closed Mondays). 

There is no lift to the Sessions Gallery one press on the intercom and assistance will be given at ground floor level, bearing in mind it may mean a short wait. There is wheelchair acess to the Museum Basement where the Mousehole Café is located and guides can be brought to you there during the opening hours above. The Café is open 10.00 am to 2.00 pm and staff at the museum can assist. 

Outside office hours information is available on this website. 

Genuinely serious emergency issues in the town can be handled by District Council on behalf of the town authorities   council emergencies page here or the Police station on Marcham Road until 8.00 pm or phone 101.
