Wallingford Museum is a colourful, delightfully intimate and family friendly local history museum, housed on two floors of this medieval oak-beamed building in the heart of Wallingford in Oxfordshire, a Thames-side town founded in the tenth century by Alfred the Great. From the Museum's windows, you can see the remains of the great ramparts of Alfred's planned town.
