A world-renowned antiques centre, Hungerford lies at the very heart of the North Wessex Downs AONB and is easily accessed by train.

With over 400 dealers and many different outlets including the award winning Antiques and Collectables arcade, if you like antiques you will absolutely love Hungerford!  But there is so much more to this delightful town.

Hungerford is immersed in history and the Commoners’ ancient rights date back to the 14th Century.  The ancient traditions and customs that are peculiar to the town include the Tutti Day – a time for celebrating, ale tasting and Tutti folk – which takes place annually on the second Tuesday after Easter.  It’s believed that Hungerford is the only place where this festival continues to be marked and celebrated. Events include the Victorian Christmas extravaganza and the Hungerford Arts Festival.

There is some delightful wildlife-rich walking along the canal or the river which is a stone’s throw from the centre and Hungerford Common is a great place for a picnic and a stroll.
