Woodstock, eight miles north west of Oxford is often visited for two reasons: Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, and his grave in nearby Bladon. However, Woodstock has much more to offer...
It is a fine Georgian town with a distinct royal heritage, containing many attractive period buildings including: the 17th century Fletcher’s House, home to two excellent museums - The Oxfordshire Museum and the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum; the 18th century Town Hall; the Church of St Mary Magdalene with its Norman doorway, early English windows, a fine collection of embroidered kneelers and a musical clock, which plays tunes hourly.
Woodstock is renowned for its antique shops but also has an interesting selection of shops and galleries, as well as some excellent pubs and restaurants.
