Southern Oxfordshire

Easy railway connections from London Paddington with 
Great Western Railway.

Just 1 hour from London to Henley on Thames.

Escape the hustle and bustle of London and immerse your delegates in the tranquil beauty of Southern Oxfordshire. Home to two National Landscapes, the Chilterns and North Wessex Downs, this region offers stunning scenery, a peaceful backdrop, alongside charming towns and villages including Henley on Thames, Abingdon, Faringdon and Didcot all with a host of unique amenities.


The area's natural beauty not only hosts some fantastic venues, large and small but makes for the perfect choice when combining your small to medium-sized events with outdoor team-building activities. Harmonise work and relaxation, with some walking and cycling along the Ridgeway or water-based team-building solutions along the Thames Path..

Southern Oxfordshire ( the combined districts of South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse)  is centrally located between London and Bristol, making it a key route when heading to or from Oxford or Swindon. Major road networks, including the A34, M40, and A420, ensure that the region is easily reachable by car. If you like to encourage your delegates to travel by train, then the Great Western Railway Network connects Southern Oxfordshire directly with London, Oxford, and Swindon. Notable stations in the region, such as Henley-on-Thames and Didcot, provide easy access points to venues with a short onward taxi ride required. Smaller rural stations like Radley, Culham, Appleford, Cholsey, and Goring are also good access points depending on your venue and preferred activities. This road and rail connectivity makes Southern Oxfordshire an ideal destination for a more rural event, with London, Reading, Swindon, and Bath all within a comfortable 1.5-hour travel radius.


If you're looking for something  with a more rural and relaxed feel, then Southern Oxfordshire provides an exceptional setting for you to host your next meeting or event.
