The Banbury office has been in its present location for over 25 years. Formerly the independent and well respected agency, Hayward White (established in 1989), the business was acquired by Hamptons International in 2007 with several of the staff still part of the business today. The office is part of a Grade II Listed building overlooking the Market Square, just outside the Castle Quay shopping centre. The office has enjoyed great success specialising in the sale of quality properties in the village and country homes market.
We are located at 44 Market Place, just outside the Castle Quay shopping centre, opposite Nat West Bank. By train, the Banbury Station is a short walk away along Bridge Street. There is a frequent rail service to London and Birmingham. By road, the town centre is just 1 mile from the M40 junction 11. The town is served by regular bus services, the station only 300 yards away in Bridge Street.
Paid parking is available in the Market Square directly in front of the office. There is a larger car park at Castle Quay North car park.
Banbury is a quaint market town in the Cherwell district of Oxford. It has a population just shy of 50,000, a large number of whom belong to London's workforce. Banbury is a popular place to live for commuters due to the fact it's only around 60 miles away from London in the south, and 40 miles from Birmingham in the north.
Banbury's close proximity to the UK's two largest cities is particularly relevant as the town benefits from strong rail links to and from both Birmingham and London. Banbury is also within easy reach of the major London airports of Gatwick and Heathrow. It also offers easy access to Luton and Stansted airports.
There's plenty to see and do in the town centre - there's Banbury Museum, where you'll find a great collection of artefacts from the local area, as well as Banbury United FC - where you can take in a game of football.
Banbury itself features an idyllic high street where you'll find lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. Banbury is famous for its "Banbury cakes" which have been produced for over 300 years. Banbury cakes are popular the world over, having been shipped to customers in places like Australia and America.
Although Banbury has been redeveloped to a large extent over the past half a century, Banbury is still home to lots of fine example of 17th and 18th Century buildings - many of which have been converted to flats and apartments.
