Local View

I have lived in Abingdon for several years. And when the chance came up to rent in the area I jumped at the chance. As a professional person I love Abingdon. It has great transportinks with several rail stations and sits near to the A34. Its only a short hop to Oxford or Didcot for work or the shops. Abingdon is an active town centre with a great market on a Monday. It has some great shops and for me as an active person great gym facilities. Its setting by the river is great. For both walking and running. A fantastic leisure centre with a great swimming pool. At night Abingdon has some great pubs and fantastic restaurants for all tastes. I have found Abingdon a great place to live, it is a quiet but yet actice place to live. You can choose a quiet spot to sit and take it all in. Or enjoy the many facilities it has to offer.
