Faringdon Tourist Information Centre

About

Faringdon is in the Vale of White Horse and lies about 30 minutes drive South West of Oxford. It is a beautiful small town and lies between two rivers The Ock and The Thames.

Its strategic position between the Thames and Ridgeway has given rise to a long history for the town. Faringdon (meaning 'fern-covered hill') was the first capital of the ancient kingdom of Wessex and Alfred the Great had his castle here.
