Wallingford City Centre hotels mapWallingford, City Centre intro. Few towns in England have longer histories than Wallingford, one of just 18 in the country in 1085 whose population exceeded 2,000 people. It may be comparatively smaller today, but much of its history remains intact, even within many Wallingford City Centre hotels. At one time, there were up to 14 churches in the town, three of which still stand today. Rubble from the once majestic Wallingford Castle was used to construct one of these, St Mary-le-More, which stands next to the 17th century Town Hall in the marketplace square. Even though not much of the castle remains today, flowers still bloom in its surrounding gardens. Earthworks remains from King Alfred the Great's reign can be seen at the Kinecroft open space facing the local history museum. British murder mystery fans may recognise the Corn Exchange Theatre as the Midsomer Murders Causton Playhouse. Famed author Agatha Christie was also a long time resident of the town.
