Visit our new galleries and discover why Abingdon is known as ‘the oldest continuously inhabited town in England.’ We welcome visitors of all ages and have a range of gallery guides, trails for families, objects to touch and costumes to try on. The main gallery tells the story of our town where you can see the very last MGB Roadster off the Abingdon factory production line and discover why bun throwing is so significant to the town. Find out more about local people and places in our Abingdon Attic and if you have a head for heights you will enjoy the spectacular views from our roof. You can also visit our welcoming ‘Buns in the Basement’ cafe which serves light lunches and drinks. « less
