About Clifton Hampden

This is a popular Thames side village which was the choice of Jerome K. Jerome for a setting for one of the riotous scenes of his "Three Men in a Boat" and it is easy to see just why he chose this attractive place.

The river here is spanned by a magnificent six ribbed-arched brick bridge which was designed by Sir Gilbert Scott, who also had a hand in the restoration of the local church in 1844 when it was almost completely rebuilt.

In the village there remains a number of attractive properties, some believed to date from Elizabethan times. A few of these make weekend retreats for people wishing to get away from the City and spend time messing about on the river.

This is a lovely spot to tarry, it is within easy reach of the facilities of the large town of Abingdon, and for those wishing to enjoy quiet country walks there is the joyful beauty of the Thames Path.

Clifton Hamden is about seven miles away from the historic buildings and dreamy spires of Oxford.
