Woodstock


Woodstock is a pretty little town in Oxfordshire, made famous through Winston Churchill and Blenheim Palace. Winston Churchill is actually buried in the nearby village of Bladon. New and Old Woodstock is divided by the River Glyme. 


The town benefits from tourism due to its location near Blenheim Palace. The Town Hall was built in 1766 and there are plenty of 17th century buildings around the town centre.


Woodstock is also home to the county museum of Oxfordshire - The Oxfordshire Museum. The town has a long and historic past and was popular with English Kings from medieval times. The town gets its name from the Old English meaning of "clearing in the woods". It is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as village in a Royal Forest.
