"An hour in Abingdon" Abingdon-on-Thames by sue_stone

Abingdon-on-Thames Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 57 photos

Early one Saturday we drove up to Oxfordshire to have a look at a car we wanted to buy. The car had been describes as 'immaculate' by the current owner, and it sounded like exactly what we were after, we decided to take the 1hr 15min drive from London to check it out.

Well, we saw the car, and if that was immaculate...then I'd hate to see what the guy described as 'good'. The paintwork of the car was in bad condition - it was covered in scratches from one of those brush car washes, and also had several marks where boxes had been put on the bottom & roof.

So, we didn't buy it. To make us feel like the trip hadn't been in vain, we stopped in at the pretty town of Abingdon for a coffee and a treat. After a coffee and then a quick look around the centre of town, be jumped back in our car and drove home.

Perhaps next time we are in the area we will have a proper look around Abingdon.
