  Banbury Market Day    
Banbury Market Day
Thursday March 28th - £23

A nursery rhyme, 'Ride a Cock Horse', has made Banbury one of the best-known towns in England. It has been suggested that the 'Fine Lady' of the nursery rhyme may have been Lady Godiva or Elizabeth I. More likely it was a local girl who rode in a May Day procession. 



Approximately 30 stalls offering a range of products, including fruit and vegetables, clothing, footwear, tools, cards and garden plants. Additional antiques stalls on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.

Banbury is a lively town with a thriving commercial core and you'll find charming streets and historic buildings alongside new developments here - such as the Castle Quay Shopping Centre in the recently regenerated Oxford Canal area.

However for many people the first thing that springs to mind when Banbury is mentioned is “Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross”. In fact, the “fine lady” from that beloved nursery rhyme (some say it was Lady Godiva, some say Elizabeth I) is immortalised as a statue in the town centre. As for the Banbury Cross, the original was destroyed in the late 1500s, but a replacement erected in 1859 still stands today.

Tuck into an authentic Banbury Cake – a juicy fruit and pastry delicacy that's rightly famous around the world.
