I have heard the song and now seen the cross. Well worth a visit. The cross takes centre stage as you enter the town and is a real attraction and well preserved. Can’t miss it and worth seeing.

Absolutely love visiting this place. I often pop in to work away from home and am always greeted by Darryl and Hannah with a warm reception. The food is homemade and delicious and there’s plenty of room to work from my laptop!

Well, if you aware of the nursery rhyme then Banbury Cross is pertinent :) Just came across by accident whilst staying at a local guest house and wandered into Banbury.

If you’ve grown up with the nursery rhyme, you will no doubt want to visit the famous Banbury Cross if you’re in Banbury. The three medieval town crosses are long gone, all destroyed by the Puritans in the 1600’s. The current cross, standing in the...More
