Heart of Abingdon Walk

A short circular route starting in East St Helen Street, and passing many of Abingdon’s most attractive medieval buildings including merchants’ houses, St Helen’s church and the Almshouses, as well as the Thames and Ock river frontage and the Margaret Brown Gardens.

Most of the walk is accessible for buggies and wheelchairs, although users of those may prefer to omit the Margaret Brown Gardens (no.4 on the map).

There are 5 interpretation boards along the route, and you can download audio tour guides from the Town Council website.
