Thame is a thriving market town, perfectly situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, just 14 miles from Oxford. From historical buildings to beautiful parks, a Museum, a Theatre, a vibrant High Street, and regular events – Thame has lots of exciting attractions and activities. True to its tradition as a market centre, the streets of Thame are home to a whole variety of fantastic independent and well-known shops, eateries & pubs. Like many traditional market towns, Thame grew from Anglo-Saxon roots but has since developed its own individual character whilst preserving its rich history. Ancient medieval buildings stand alongside Georgian and Victorian architecture and the iconic boat-shaped high street stands as testimony to the market place for which it was originally designed – the beauty of the town offers a quintessentially English experience. The town is also one of the most frequently used filming locations for the popular ITV series, Midsomer Murders.
Thame was granted a market charter in 1215 and markets have been held on a Tuesday since that time. A trip to the market guarantees you a vibrant display of produce, gifts, homeware, clothes and more with friendly traders always ready to help. Each year the Charter Market hosts a variety of fun activities, including a Community Market Day in August, with fun activities for kids and adults alike, and the opportunity to find out more about Charities and organisations that serve Thame.
