Wantage is a historic market town in the county of Oxfordshire. It was originally part of Berkshire until it was made part of the Vale of the White Horse district of Oxfordshire in 1974 due to reorganising of Berkshire. Wantage is the birthplace of King Alfred the Great, born in 849 in what was originally known as Wanating.

Originally a small Roman settlement, Wantage appears in the Domesday Book and Royalist troops were stationed there during the Civil War. In the 19th Century Lord Wantage, a local and national benefactor was very involved in the creation of the British Red Cross Society. Since 1848 Wantage has been the home to the Community of Saint Mary the Virgin that is one of the largest communities of Anglican nuns in the world.


Wantage is at the crossing of the B4507 valley road running east to merge with the A417 between Reading and Cirencester. The A338 runs through Wantage connecting to junction 14 off the M4 motorway and Hungerford and Oxford to the north. The majority of bus services are provided by Stagecoach, linking Wantage, Abingdon, Didcot, Faringdon and Grove with 3 buses per hour Monday to Saturday. Thames Travel also provides a device between Wantage and Didcot via Harwell Campus.
