It's always nice to have a look around, see what's new and also have a look at the Bun Throwing exhibits.
|Information on the town's unique custom of Bun Throwing|
|Buns from the Bun Throwing that celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II in 2012. A total of 6,000 buns were thrown on that occasion|
As it's winter the rooftop isn't open to visitors, however you can still climb the stairs and get a fairly good view of the town and the surrounding area from inside.

Abingdon-on-Thames has a brewing heritage and was for many years the home to Morland Brewery.

You can still see old Morland Brewery plaques on pubs and lost pubs around the town and further afield.

One of the exhibits caught my eye as I hadn't heard of Bun Thrower ale before!
One of the recent exhibits was about the Michaelmas fair that stretches from the Market Place to the end of Ock Street. I haven't been to the annual street fair since 1999 as I moved from Abingdon in the year 2000, but it was nice to see the old photos showing scenes from years gone by. Hopefully I'll get back for the event this year.
Check out the Abingdon County Hall Museum website for more information and opening times.
