Whatever your mood, you’ll find somewhere to celebrate it in Science Vale and the surrounding area. From Michelin-starred food at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons to a decent pint of beer in your local pub, from live theatre to the season’s blockbuster movie, Oxfordshire is buzzing with nightlife.
Didcot’s Cornerstone Arts Centre offers theatre, music, stand-up comedy and a gallery with a real-food café. The town also has a multiplex cinema. The Beacon at Wantage serves up a varied programme of cinema, music, theatre, classes and workshops. Our plans for Science Vale also include increased leisure facilities in Wantage and Didcot.
For the most part, local nightlife revolves around pubs and restaurants. Recent award-winners include The Nags Head in Abingdon and Faringdon’s Restaurant 56. For a louder beat and a wilder rhythm, make for the night club in Wantage or the night-time glow of near by Reading and Oxford.
Daytime entertainments for the whole family
Local cultural attractions include Abingdon Abbey and Museum, the Earth Trust at Little Wittenham, Uffington Castle, Uffington White Horse, Wayland’s Smithy and Ashdown House. Unicorn Theatre also draw the crowds, as does the Faringdon annual summer FollyFest.
The Southern Oxfordshire region is home to numerous historic houses and museums, including the National Trust’s Nuffield Place, Didcot Railway Centre, the Aston Martin Heritage Museum, the Benson Veteran Cycle Museum and the River & Rowing Museum at Henley-on-Thames.
