In 2009 Goring was awarded the prestigious ‘Oxfordshire Village of the Year' and also won the coveted “ Best in South of England” title.
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, Post Office, Boutique hotel, Doctors and Dental surgeries and importantly a mainline station offering fast services up to London (Paddington). There is also easy access for the major local towns, including Oxford, Reading and Newbury, the M4 and M40 motorways, and for Heathrow.
N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading in approx. 2019 which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to central London destinations.
