Banbury - famous for its cakes, cross and the ‘Ride a Cock Horse’ nursery rhyme – is an ideal base for touring the Cotswolds, Shakespeare’s Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick and Oxford.

Banbury retains much of its historic market town character, and was granted its market charter by Queen Mary 1 in 1554.

The town has a modern shopping centre which blends in with the old shopping streets, where visitors can find a fine selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. There is also a wide variety of hotels, guest houses and bed-and-breakfast accommodation within the town.
