Welcome to Wantage

A place to live, a place to love

Wantage in Oxfordshire is a small market town in the Vale of White Horse, and has a good range of shops and services, including plenty of pubs and restaurants, places to visit and accommodation.

Take a look at the Wantage Directory. Add your own business, club or other organisation. It’s free!

What’s on in Wantage? Take a look at the Wantage Calendar. Add your own events too. It’s free!

And look at the Wantage News page. Do you have a story to tell? Then send us your Wantage News for inclusion on this website.

Links with the past are very strong too and Wantage is a great place to visit to enjoy this historic part of England; it is the town in which King Alfred the Great was born. We also have literary connections in Sir John Betjeman and Thomas Hardy.

On our doorstep is the Ridgeway and lots of pretty Oxfordshire villages; great for countryside walking, followed by a pub lunch!

And every (well, most) Saturdays 11am May to September is “Wantage presents… Music in the Marketplace”. A little something to brighten your day. We have singer/songwriters, dancers, ceilidh bands and more. Hope to see you there.
