Welcome to WANTAGE

Wantage in Oxfordshire is a small market town in the Vale of White Horse, and has a good range of shops and services, including plenty of pubs and restaurantsplaces to visit and accommodation.

Links with the past are very strong too and Wantage is a great place to visit to enjoy this historic part of England; it is the town in which King Alfred the Great was born. We also have literary connections in Sir John Betjeman and Thomas Hardy.

On our doorstep is the Ridgeway and lots of pretty Oxfordshire villages; great for countryside walking, followed by a pub lunch!
