Occupied in the Bronze and Iron ages, Abingdon - famous in the 20th century for the manufacture of MG sports cars - may well be the oldest continuously inhabited town in England. It stands at the confluence of the River Ock with the River Thames and, thanks to its riverbank site, was important to both the Romans and the Saxons.
A Benedictine monastery called Abbandun was founded here in the 7th century and became one of the richest abbeys in Britain. Surviving parts include a Long Gallery and a hall that has been turned into an Elizabethan theatre.
St Helen’s Church is one of only four English churches to boast five aisles, while one of the town’s two river bridges is over 500 years old. Stone-built County Hall houses the local museum.
