Thame is a historic market town in the heart of Oxfordshire.
Like many traditional market towns, Thame grew from Anglo-Saxon roots but has since developed its own individual character whilst preserving its rich history; ancient medieval buildings stand alongside Georgian and Victorian architecture.
The iconic boat-shaped high street stands as testimony to the historic market place for which it was originally designed, but there is nothing historic about our markets which continue to thrive today.
The following markets are held in Thame:
- Tuesday Charter Market
- Tuesday Farmers Market
- Thame Farmers Mart
- French Market
- World Village Market
It’s frequently used as a filming location for the popular ITV series, Midsomer Murders. The town regularly features as either Causton, or as any one of the many villages in the fictional Midsomer County.
Archaeologists made a major discovery at Thame in 2015. The land beneath the Thame Meadows housing estate, Site F in the Thame Neighbourhood Plan, has revealed that Thame has a rich prehistoric past, going back around six thousand years.
Thame appears in the Domesday Book as belonging to the Bishop of Lincoln. This is because the land originally overseen by the Bishops of Dorchester expanded northwards, as far north as Lincoln, and shortly after 1066, a new Norman cathedral was built at Lincoln, with the territory and private estates of the Bishops of Dorchester transferring to the new line of Bishops of Lincoln. Successive bishops of Lincoln were lords of the manor of Thame until Tudor times.
Thame is also host to many festivals, carnivals and fairs.
