Woodstock is a wonderful little town on the edge of the Cotswolds, just 10 minutes away from the large city of Oxford and home to great eateries, pretty shops and all that natural beauty that is the trademark of the area.
As a fine Georgian town, Woodstock has an abundance of attractive period buildings: including the 17th century Fletcher’s House, home to the excellent Oxfordshire Museum and a Visitor Information Point, the 18th century Town Hall and the Church of St Mary Magdalene.
The town has excellent antique shops as well as an interesting selection of other shops and galleries, plus some excellent pubs and restaurants. The Kings Head, The Black Prince and The Malborough Arms are all favourites with us.
Woodstock's major tourist attraction is historic Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, which brings tourists from all over the globe to Woodstock and the Cotswolds every day of the year.
Oxford is a university town and as such, it is not short of restaurants, cafes or shops. With the impressive university buildings right in the centre of the town, it truly is the heart and soul of the place and what gives it presence and sparkle.
