Oxfordshire Home FAQ Links

The station is in the attractive village of Goring but it also serves the smaller village of Streatley over the bridge on the other side of the River Thames (in Berkshire). The Thames Path and Ridgeway National Trails pass through Goring making it a great place for walks. Goring is in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From Hartslock Nature Reserve there are magnificent views of the Thames Valley, including the railway line and a distant view of Basildon Park (see Pangbourne). Goring & Streatley is pronounced 'Gore-ing and Streetly'.
