Woodstock is a rather special historic town, its main streets are lined with 16th, 17th and 18th Century houses, cottages and shops. There is an excellent range of local amenities including well reputed primary and secondary schools, a library, many specialist shops, small supermarket, banks, hotels, public houses and restaurants. The parish church of St. Mary Magdalene was badly damaged in the Civil War and was restored in Victorian times. Woodstock adjoins the great Blenheim Estate through which there are many walks. The University City of Oxford is some eight miles to the south and offers a comprehensive range of recreational, shopping and cultural facilities.
Woodstock is well placed for access to the A34 and M40 (junction 9) which provides access to the Midlands and London. There are mainline railways stations at Charlbury and Oxford with local stations at Tackley and Long Hanborough.
