Towns & Villages
Perched on the highest point in Oxfordshire, Chipping Norton was once a centre for the Cotswold wool trade and was given a Royal charter by King John in 1205. The medieval Guildhall and St Mary's Church reflect the prosperity brought by the wool trade.
Renowned for its antique shops and diverse shopping offer, including a regular market - Chipping Norton retains a robust living, working market town atmosphere. There is good choice of places to eat and top quality entertainment at the wonderful Theatre, famous for its pantomime and visiting world class performers…
Chipping Norton is an excellent base for exploring further afield: easily accessible by road and rail, right on the edge of the Cotswolds and lying between Oxford and Stratford upon Avon.
