Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Vale and Downland Museum

The museum is housed within a converted 16thC cloth merchant's house. An interactive auditorium presents the history of the Vale and Downland area. Special collections from across the Vale display the story of Wantage and the rural life of its surrounding countryside. The latest technology is not forgotten, with a Williams Formula 1 racing car display. The Tourist Information Centre for Wantage is on the ground floor.
