The much prized village of Goring on Thames occupies a stunning location in the Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills and Berkshire Downlands as the River flows from Oxford down to Reading, in an area of scenic landscape known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap’ and designated an ‘A.O.N.B.’ In 2009 Goring was awarded the prestigious ‘Oxfordshire Village of the Year’ and also won the coveted best in ‘South of England’ title.
This stretch of the River, the longest between locks, is regarded as one of the most beautiful and is forever associated with Kenneth Graham’s immortal book “Wind in the Willows” as well as Jerome K Jerome’s book “Three Men in a Boat” which actually mentions Streatley in its narrative.
The village boasts an excellent range of shops and facilities together with Olde Worlde pubs, a highly regarded Bistro/Café, choice of restaurants, a Bank, Post Office, Boutique hotel, Doctors and Dental surgeries and importantly a mainline station offering fast services up to London (Paddington). There is also easy access for the major local towns, including Oxford, Reading and Newbury, the M4 and M40 motorways, and for Heathrow.
N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading in approx.2017 which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central London destinations.
Recognised as a thriving community there are a wide range of clubs, societies and special interest groups to suit most people.
There is a highly rated Primary school and in the local area are a first class choice of both state and private schools with bus connections.
The central part of Goring is a ‘Conservation Area’ and has a wealth of interesting period properties many Listed being of significant architectural and historical interest.
