For the visitor, Bampton is ideally sited for road and rail links, and is at the centre of an area where there is much to do and explore. The whole of the centre of the town is a conservation area, and there are almost 100 listed buildings and other objects within the parish.
Our little town has a surprising range of local amenities - shops, pubs, restaurants, businesses, and places to stay. It also has quite a history from the Romans to its early Saxon origins, the Norman castle, the wool and pony trade, the 12th century church, the quarrying of the local stone; now it is a thriving centre used by local villagers and visitors.

Bampton has been famous for over 40 years for its floral displays - Bampton in Bloom. The town has won the national Britain in Bloom competition no less than six times, the last being in the millennium year. Bampton has won five RHS GOLD MEDALS from South West in Bloom in recent years. The town still looks very beautiful throughout the year although we no longer enter the competition.
A copy of the 'Bampton Town Trail' which gives details of a stroll around the town can be downloaded here or a VIDEO of the walk around down can now be seen here. Guided Town Tours are now available for groups - see Heritage Centre page.
