A place to live, a place to love,
welcome to Wantage
Links with the past are very strong too and Wantage is a great place to visit to enjoy this historic part of England. Its where King Alfred the Great was born. We also have literary connections in Sir John Betjeman and Thomas Hardy.
The village of Grove is just a couple of miles to the north. Grove is a thriving community with plenty of shops, churches, businesses, clubs and has Fairtrade Village status – take a look at the Grove Parish Council website.
To find out what’s happening in OX12, please see the Wantage Calendar, local news can be found on our Wantage News page. Shops, business, clubs and many other facilities are listed in the Wantage Directory. Our collection of local photographs can be viewed in the Photo Gallery.
Whether you are a visitor to Wantage and Grove or a resident, we hope this independently owned and run website will help you get the most out of our lovely town and villages.
