Goring-on-Thames lies serenely in the beautiful Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire and the Berkshire Downlands opposite above the village of Streatley, the area known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap’ and designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
In 2010 Goring was awarded the prestigious ‘Oxfordshire Village of the Year’ and also the coveted ‘South of England’ title. Local amenities include a super primary school, an excellent range of interesting shops and restaurants, together with a riverside café, boutique hotel, two olde worlde inns, health centre, veterinary practice, dentist and library. Importantly, a mainline railway station provides fast commuter services to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. The area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of state and private schooling.
The central village ‘Conservation Area’ has a wealth of architecturally interesting properties, many listed and dating from around the 16th Century. Historically, Goring-on-Thames traces back to Saxon times.
In addition to having well revered and outstanding local state primary and secondary schooling, including a primary school within Goring-on-Thames itself, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; Cranford House School, The Oratory Preparatory School, Moulsford Preparatory School, St Andrews Preparatory School, The Oratory School, Pangbourne College, Brockhurst & Marlston House, Downe House, Rupert House School, Shiplake College, The Abbey School, Bradfield College, The Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon School, Abingdon Preparatory School, Radley College, and St Helen & St Katharine.
Streatley-on-Thames, on the Berkshire side of the river, is another picturesque village surrounded by hills and woodlands now mainly owned by the National Trust. Fronting onto the river by the bridge crossing over to Goring is the Swan at Streatley, a luxury 4 star riverside hotel with adjoining Coppa Club and leisure and fitness facilities.
Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) services have commenced from Reading, with the full service scheduled to commence in 2021, which together with the completed electrification of the line has significantly improved travelling times to East and West destinations.
