The County Hall has dominated the marketplace of Abingdon, south of Oxford, since the late 17th century. Designed by a protégé of Sir Christopher Wren, this splendid Baroque building was erected between 1678 and 1682. It housed a courtroom on the first floor, raised on arches above a market space.

It is now home to the Abingdon County Hall Museum, with three floors of fascinating exhibits and stunning rooftop views looking over Abingdon-On-Thames and beyond.
