Thame is a thriving and historic Oxfordshire market town with an attractive and well-maintained town centre that boasts many award-winning and unique shops.
Local retailers offer top quality, excellent service and also excellent value for money. There are ample free car parking spaces and many wonderful restaurants, cafes and pubs which makes visiting Thame a real treat. Visit the Thame pages of the South Oxfordshire District Council tourism website at www.visitthame.co.uk which contain details of accommodation and attractions for visitors to the district.
There are a wide variety of buildings with historical and architectural interest with thatched cottages and timber framed buildings blending with Georgian and Victorian buildings. There is a wealth of historic houses and gardens nearby.
Thame is a “living” market town, with a street market every Tuesday, a farmers’ market on the second Tuesday of each month and regular livestock markets. The town is ideal for family shopping and gift ideas with family-run establishments and an interesting variety of non-chain store shops offering a friendly personal service.
Thame has many places to eat and drink, ranging from traditional English pubs selling real ale and pub lunches through Italian, Chinese and Indian restaurants back to Olde English tea shops selling cream teas. Any of these would make an ideal rest from sightseeing or shopping.
Thame is ideally situated to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the Thames and Chilterns area. The Town has its own Local Nature Reserve, Cuttle Brook Nature Reserve, where a quiet walk and, perhaps, a picnic can be enjoyed. There are many public footpaths, including the Chiltern Hills with the Ridgeway Path and the Oxfordshire Way where outstanding views of the surrounding area can be enjoyed.
The Phoenix Trail between Thame and Princes Risborough provides an amenity for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
