What do I need to know before moving to Abingdon?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Abingdon, they said:

"Abingdon is a historic market town in Oxfordshire, England, located on the River Thames. It is a popular destination for expats due to its close proximity to London and Oxford. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Abingdon is higher than the national average, so budgeting is important. Expats should also be aware that the town is quite small, so there are limited job opportunities and amenities. Public transport is available, but it is limited and can be expensive. Expats should also be aware that the weather in Abingdon can be unpredictable, with cold winters and hot summers. Finally, expats should be aware that the town is quite traditional and conservative, so it is important to be respectful of local customs and traditions," explained one expat living in Abingdon, England.
