Woodstock is a historic town just to the north of Oxford. It grew up as a coach stop around the Royal Hunting Lodge, which later became the site of Blenheim Palace, home of the Dukes of Marlborough since the early 1700s.
With its characterful accomodation, it is the ideal place to stay for its own interesting history, to see Blenheim Palace, or to visit Winston Churchill's grave at nearby Bladon. Oxford City with its colleges, museums and dreaming spires is within easy access by bus or car.
The town has an active local business community and makes provision for the everyday needs of visitors and residents alike: Post Office, bank, supermarket, newsagent, cafes, restaurants, galleries and a wide range of shops are all situated in the town centre. The local people are always willing to assist visitors with honesty and a smile.
Woodstock is a safe place to be. Walking around at any time of day or night will allow you to enjoy the experience of being in a typical old English town.
At the centre of Woodstock is 'Market Place' and the Town Hall. From there, Park Street goes down to the Blenheim Palace's 'Town Gate', passing the Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene on the left. The Town Hall lies at the apex of a triangle made up of High Street on one side, Market Street on the other and Oxford Street at the base
Each section is only ~150 – 200 metres/yards long, so it's a light walk for viewing the shops, galleries and other amenities in the centre of the town.
