Welcome to Abingdon-on-Thames

Welcome to Abingdon-on-Thames, the historic market town set in rural Oxfordshire next to the Thames and near to Oxford.  Browse this website to discover more about the ancient streets and sites, riverside walks, activities and events in our town.  Abingdon is famed for its Bun Throwing, a unique tradition for celebrating major royal occasions which dates back over 250 years.  This website contains all the information you need to find out about our beautiful, lively market town.

Who do I contact?

Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council deals with a range of services in the town and details of these can be found in the menus at the top of this page.  We get a lot of queries for services which are dealt with by other councils and we are unfortunately not able to help with these.

For the Registrar, roads, parking, schools, libraries, recycling centres, social care, families and children and a range of other services you will need to contact Oxfordshire County Council.

For waste collection, council tax, planning, car parks, housing, housing and council tax benefit, licensing, environmental health and may sports activities including the outdoor pool you will need to contact the Vale of White Horse District Council.

These lists of services are not exhaustive but will hopefully help you to find the right council to help with your enquiry.  Further details can also be found here.
