Banbury is a picturesque market town on the River Cherwell in northern Oxfordshire, on the edge of The Cotswolds. Steeped in history, with strong connections to Oliver Cromwell and the English Civil War, Banbury boasts some wonderful sights including the impressive bronze statue of the “Fine Lady” from the famous “ride a cock horse” rhyme, set close to the Banbury Cross.
In this bustling town you will also find the atmospheric lanes and streets of the Old Town, the Castle Quay shopping centre and the local museum beside the Oxford Canal, plus the famous Tooley’s Boatyard. Foodies should also try a piece of the delicious ‘Banbury Cake’, a special fruit and pastry cake.
Bloxham Vale is perfectly placed to enjoy the beautiful Cotswolds whilst being close enough to Banbury and its surrounding towns and villages to take advantage of the many shopping, education and cultural opportunities on offer in this much sought after area.
