The historic market town of Banbury is perhaps most famous for its cakes, cross and the ‘Ride a Cock Horse’ nursery rhyme, but it also provides an ideal base for touring locations including the Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Oxford.

With a current population of 45,000 and excellent transport links, the town of Banbury has grown into a thriving community, yet still retains much of its historic market town character, with a number of parks and green spaces for residents and tourists to enjoy.

Banbury Town Council was created in 2000 to represent the people of Banbury, providing a voice for the town and aiming to improve the quality of life for people living in Banbury. The Town Council’s aim is to enhance the attractiveness of the town as a place in which to live, work, visit or invest.
