Living in Wantage
Fleur-de-Lis Wantage is ideally located only a few minutes' walk from the vibrant Market Place. You will benefit from a wealth of shops and services, including restaurants, cafes, pubs, leisure facilities and open spaces. Wantage's links with its past are very strong - King Alfred the great was born in the town, and there is literary connections to Sir John Betjeman and Thomas Hardy.
The historic market town is the gateway to the Ridgeway - an ancient route through downland, secluded valleys and woodland - where you can enjoy magnificent views of the Vale of White Horse, observe its prehistoric hill figure and pass through countless quintessential English country villages.
