Things to see and do in Didcot

With a selection of local parks and Mowbray Fields Local Nature Reserve right on the edge of town, you don’t need to stray far from the centre of Didcot to get that open countryside feeling. The town lies in the midst of the Cotswolds, the Chiltern Hills and the North Wessex Downs, providing you with endless opportunities to go for long dog walks, bike rides and hikes through beautiful natural settings. 

Didcot Railway Centre is an interesting spot back in town, while nearby sights and landmarks include Dorchester Abbey Pendon Museum and Sutton Courtenay Environmental Education Centre. Pick up part of the 200-mile Thames Path just outside town, go walking around Thrupp Lake and head up Radley Barrow Hills for stunning views back across the local area. 

Education

Didcot is blessed with a number of excellent schools, including one of the local secondaries, Didcot Girls’ School. Rated as outstanding by Ofsted, it caters for girls aged 11 to 18 and has a large catchment area. St Birinus School, meanwhile, is a centrally located boys’ school classed as good by Ofsted. Didcot Primary Academy receives top marks from the education board, along with Ladygrove Park Primary and the mixed secondary Downs School in nearby Compton. 

Transport links in Didcot

The town’s train station is Didcot Parkway, which lies along Station Road and puts on Great Western Railway services which include trains to London that take just 40 over minutes. As well as a number of bus routes which serve, among many other places, the train station, the A34 road bends towards Didcot on its way between Newbury to the south and Oxford to the north. The A4130, meanwhile, will get you to Heathrow Airport in less than an hour. 

The Didcot property market

House prices in Didcot have seen exceptional rises in recent years, taking them significantly higher than the UK average. You can still find exceptional value in the local area though, including modern 2 bedroom semi-detached homes off the A4130 just a mile from Didcot Parkway. 

If you’re after a large family home then there are stunning 5 bed detached houses available in neighbouring village grove, while Newbury offers a range of properties including new homes which back on to the racecourse. And when you buy a house with us, you can benefit from great offers such as our Movemaker scheme, which could save you a small fortune in estate agent fees when you sell your current home.
