Goring Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Oxfordshire...

Sixteen miles south of Oxford, this pretty village and boating centre was important in prehistoric times as the place where the Icknfield Way and the Ridge Way linked up at a fording place on the River Thames. Nearby is the Goring Gap, which separates the Berkshire Downs and the Chiltern Hills. Goring is often considered a ‘twin’ with nearby Streatley because they are linked by a river bridge.
