The Banbury office has been in its present location for over 25 years. Formerly the independent and well-respected agency, Hayward White (established in 1989), the business was acquired by Hamptons International in 2007 with several of the staff still part of the business today. The office is part of a Grade II Listed building overlooking the Market Square, just outside the Castle Quay shopping centre. The office has enjoyed great success specialising in the sale of quality properties in the village and country homes market.

Banbury is a quaint market town in the Cherwell district of Oxford with a population of around 50,000. It's a popular place to live for commuters being only 60 miles from London in the south and 40 miles from Birmingham in the north.
Banbury's proximity to the UK's two largest cities is particularly relevant as the town benefits from strong rail links to and from both Birmingham and London. Banbury is also within easy reach of the major airports: Gatwick and Heathrow, Luton and Stansted.
Banbury is famous for its 'Banbury cakes' which have been produced for over 300 years. Famous the world over, the cakes have been shipped to customers in places like Australia and America.
Banbury has an idyllic high street with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants and there's plenty to see and do in the town centre. Also, Banbury Museum has a great collection of local artefacts, and for football lovers there's Banbury United FC.
Although Banbury has been redeveloped in recent years, it is still home to lots of fine examples of 17th and 18th century properties - many of which have been converted into flats and apartments.
