This traditional market town in the beautiful Vale of the White Horse was the birthplace in 849AD of King Alfred the Great - a statue in the market square commemorates his arrival. The large 13th century Church of St Peter and St Paul contains tombs of the Fitzwaryn family whose members included Dick Whittington, Lord Mayor of London. Close to the church is a wooded park dedicated to John Betjeman who lived in Wantage. Nearby is the prehistoric Ridge Way track and carved into the chalk hillside is the famous – and ancient – figure of the White Horse, possibly created around 350BC by the Celts.
