The town of Banbury is on the edge of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and has been a busy market town for centuries and is now also an important industrial centre which has grown considerably in size over the last half of the 20th century.
If you’re planning on staying in the area, Banbury and the surrounding villages have a number of Hotels and restaurants. In fact, two of Banbury’s most famous inns remain to this day.. The Reindeer in Parsons Street and the large 17th century Whateley Hall Hotel in the Horsefair which used to be called the Three Tuns. Many famous people have stayed here including Johnathan Swift, who is reputed to have taken the name Gulliver from a tombstone in the nearby churchyard.
