There’s lots of culture in the town with the historic Warwick Castle, a Church boasting iconic views and a Norman Crypt. Packed full of history and things to do, a short drive will have you immersed into the heart of the town.

The New Forest

Just outside Southampton lies The New Forest. Home to The New Forest National Park, you’ll find winding and open roads, miles of woodland and native, wild horses. Full of magic and trees with branches that arch over the roads, it’s less than an hour and a half’s drive from Abingdon. If adventure is calling you, then this is your destination.


Enjoy city life in Somerset when you visit Bath. Roman-built baths give the city its namesake and you can tour the ancient history site during your visit. There is a modern spa nearby so you can experience that roman-feeling and aside from bathing like a God, there is a lot more to see and do too. It’s a city that is bursting with culture from theatres and art to sporting and tourism.


A seaside resort with over seven miles of beaches to enjoy, there is more to this town than meets the eye. An active nightlife scene, a pier full of activities and the two-mile-long Bournemouth Garden’s mean there is something for the whole family, your friends or your other half! Just over an hour and a half from Abingdon, Bournemouth is a great destination if you’re looking for variety and a sea breeze.

These are just four great places to visit and we are lucky to be based in Abingdon. If you’re looking for used cars in Oxfordshire, get in touch with one of the team or browse our stock of pre-owned cars online.
