Pocket Guide: Abingdon Abingdon County Hall Museum Hotels

Abingdon is a charming Oxfordshire town whose history goes back centuries and which has over 200 listed buildings in its town centre. Full of delightful riverside walks, parks and gardens, and some of the best high street shopping in the region, it's a great place to visit from your Oxfordshire hotel or B&B accommodation. One of the best ways to get to know the town and surrounding area is to visit the excellent Abingdon County Hall Museum and spend a pleasant afternoon browsing the exhibits and relics on show there.

Oxfordshire Hotels for Abingdon County Hall Museum

Abingdon County Hall Museum exists to present to the public the rich and colourful history of the town itself and the whole of the surrounding area in the most agreeable and informative way possible, and it certainly succeeds in these lofty aims. It's a lovely museum to visit from a hotel or B&B in this part of Oxfordshire, and you can combine it with a look at some of the other local attractions. There's no shortage of these in Abingdon and its surrounding area, as the whole region is steeped in history and has many events taking place throughout the year.

A Historic Regional Museum Close to Hotels in Oxfordshire

The County Hall in Abingdon was finished in 1682 and stands imposingly on the south side of the town's historic market place. The stonemason responsible for creating it worked alongside the famous Christopher Wren when he was rebuilding London landmarks following the Great Fire in 1666. The County Hall was originally used by Berkshire Assizes as a courtroom and since 1781 was an entertainment venue. This was where 'bun throwing' events were held, and it wasn't until 1919 that a museum was established here.

Visitors today are lucky as the Abingdon County Hall Museum was recently fully renovated and has never been in better shape. The Heritage Lottery Fund contributed much of the funding necessary to turn it into the impressive venue it is today, and from a local hotel such as The Cherry Tree Inn or The Railway Inn you have easy access.
