Recognised as one of the most beautiful stretches of the Thames known as the 'Goring Gap', the villages of Goring & Streatley lie on opposite sides of the river in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Offering many amenities such as shops, restaurants, hotels, pubs and a highly sought after primary school and pre-school, Goring is also conveniently located for commuting to London (56 minutes) and Reading (15 minutes), Oxford (25 minutes) by train, or easily accessible to nearby towns such as Henley-on-Thames by car. The spectacular scenery in and around the Goring Gap is the setting for such classic books as Wind in the Willows, Watership Down and Three men in a Boat.
Views of Goring Lock, the weirs and the rural landscape, especially as seen from the bridge, are some of the most photographed and painted scenes in England. The village has a thriving local community with a wide range of clubs, societies and special interest groups - latest news and events are available on the village website at
