The much prized village of Goring on Thames occupies a stunning location in the scenic Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills and the Berkshire Downlands as it flows from Oxford down to Reading, the area known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap' and designated an ‘A.O.N.B.'

This stretch of the River the longest between locks, is regarded as one of the most beautiful and is forever associated with Kenneth Graham's immortal book “Wind in the Willows” as well as Jerome K Jerome's book “Three Men in a Boat” which actually mentions Streatley in its narrative.
The village boasts an excellent range of shops and facilities together with Olde Worlde pubs, a highly regarded Bistro/Café, choice of restaurants, Boutique hotel, Doctors and Dental surgeries and importantly a mainline station offering fast services up to London (Paddington).
