This section is about the general aspects of Goring-on-Thames at Large

Goring-on-Thames is a small, attractive village in Oxfordshire that sits between the Chilterns and the Berkshire Downs on the East bank of the River Thames. This stretch of the river Thames is known as the Goring Gap.

Goring village has a population of about 3,500 people with one primary school, the Goring Church of England Primary School, a railway station (Goring & Streatley) with direct services to London and connecting services to the West country, the North of England and also Heathrow Airport.

Goring recently won the Oxfordshire Village of the Year for 2009 and followed by also winning the South of England Award.

Three Visitor Information Maps are located in the Village. The information is also presented  online on this site.

The Norman church of St Thomas can be seen overlooking the river. The village has much to offer with many shops, restaurants and bars, or maybe a Jazz Concert where legendary jazz musicians and instrumentalists gather once a month in Goring Village Hall, or perhaps with the stunning scenery a stroll along the Thames Path where Flag Irises and Willowherb grow, or sail on the river to Goring Lock where majestic Swans glide, and the Damselflies and iridescent Dragonflies hover. Perfect !
