Things to do in Thame

The past is all around you in Thame, from its historic centre with examples of many architectural styles, to the widely acclaimed Thame museum. Its market is still thriving, having first been granted its market charter back in the 12th century when it was an important stop on the route from Aylesbury to Oxford and a crossing point for the river that bears its name.

But it's not all in the past: Thame also offers unbeatable shopping, with many award-winning and unique shops. And after all that retail therapy you can enjoy great food and drink in one of the many pubs, cafes and restaurants, or sample excellent local produce at the monthly farmers' market.

If fresh air is your thing, why not explore the picturesque landscape of the Oxford Plain? You could cycle the Phoenix trail to Princes Risborough, walk the Oxfordshire Way or one of the many other routes that take you through pristine countryside to charming villages and welcoming country pubs.
