Betjeman Millennium Park

The Betjeman Millennium Park in Wantage was opened in 2002 and is named in memory of poet laureate Sir John Betjeman, who lived in Wantage for 20 years.

It is a delightful semi-wild place, usually peaceful, and well worth a visit. It has been used to host a number of activities such as poetry readings, music, school visits and drama. The park contains various sculptures, information boards and poems engraved in stone.

The park can be accessed on foot and is also wheelchair friendly. The nearest car park is The Lamb public house in Mill Street. Note however, that this car park is for people using the pub, so if you do park there, why not pop in for some lunch – they’re very good.
