Goring-on-Thames (or Goring) is a relatively large village and civil parish on the Thames in South Oxfordshire, about south of Wallingford and north-west of Reading. It has a railway station on the main line between Oxford and London in the nucleus of the village. As a civil parish, most of the land is farmed and woodland on the Goring Gap outcrop of the Chiltern Hills. Its riverside plain is made up of the residential area of the village including its high street which has a few shops, public houses and restaurants. Neighbouring this street are the village's churches, one of which, to Saint Thomas Becket has a nave built in the 50 years after his death in the early 12th century, a later bell tower. The village faces Streatley and is connected to that village, which has a lower population and a large riverside hotel, by Goring and Streatley Bridge.
