Visit Chipping Norton
Perched on one of the highest points in the Cotswolds, Chipping Norton has lately become synonymous in the media with the ‘Chipping Norton set’. While a number of celebrities do live in the area, few reputations are so erroneous: this is a not a town of Range Rovered London weekenders, but a bustling, lively market town with a strong community spirit.
Chippy, as it is known affectionately by the locals, is the ‘Town of Ten Festivals’ with an enviable reputation for lively and entertaining events both great and small ranging from the busy little weekly market to the annual Chipping Norton Literary Festival, an increasingly influential event.
Most of the events are still centred on the heart of the town, in the medieval market place faced by its imposing town hall and the medieval Guildhall. Most also involve the town’s wonderful theatre, which was created from a disused Salvation Army citadel in the 1970s. The Theatre Chipping Norton hosts a year round programme of plays, films and events luring many national touring companies and household names out into the wilds of the Cotswolds! Its event programme culminates each year in the famous annual panto, beloved by people of all ages.
As well as a modern leisure centre with indoor pool, Chipping Norton has a community run Lido into which local celebrity Jeremy Clarkson, a keen supporter of the Lido, once drove a Rolls Royce during an episode of Top Gear!
Chipping Norton is well known for its antiques shops – comedian Ronnie Barker opened and ran The Emporium in the High Street for many years – and diverse shopping offer with a wide range of interesting independent shops and boutiques.
Chipping Norton and the surrounding countryside is also becoming known as a gastronomic centre with restaurants like Wild Thyme showcasing the wonderful flavours that local produce can produce.
