A great place to browse

With a wide range of independent shops, Abingdon-on-Thames is emphatically an individual. It’s a unique place to spend a relaxing day browsing and discovering something new. The streets cluster around the medieval Market Place, making it easy to wander around without walking too far, and everything is just a stone’s throw from the picturesque Thames riverbank. Family-run businesses mean that friendly service is backed by sound knowledge of the products they sell, so you will find our shopkeepers a refreshing change.

Two new businesses are The Little Tea Room and a new dry cleaner both on East St Helen Street.

If you would like to search for a business by name, you can use the Business Directory. or look at individual streets. Don't confine your browse to the town centre as there are some gems in all parts of town.

Are you a new local business? Businesses are listed on request. If you would like your business listed then please e-mail full details to a photograph would be useful.

Bury Street has its own website with offers in the shops in this town centre pedestrian area. Abingdon-on-Thames Chamber of Commerce has useful extra information and lots of information on a Christmas in Abingdon theme. New Year information will be added on 2nd January.

The town is one of sixty towns in England which have a centre that has to be conserved for its history, heritage and listed ancient buildings. Large departmental stores are mainly to the West of the town centre, a short walk or take the 15 towards Witney or 31 bus in the Wantage direction from Stratton Way heading West just a few stops.

Please note that the listing of any business on this site does not imply any recommendation by Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council in relation to the service provided by each business. The listings are provided by the Town Council as a helpful guide as to what the town offers.
