The club, based in Wallingford, was founded by the 1995 merger of two local teams: the original Wallingford Town, a Hellenic League side at the time, founded in 1922, and Wallingford United, founded in 1934.
In 2001–02, AFC Wallingford won the Combined Counties League championship comfortably, and then were runners-up to Withdean 2000 and AFC Wimbledon in the succeeding two years. However, the facilities at their ground, Hithercroft, did not meet the standards of the Isthmian League and thus they were denied further promotion. A grant of £100,000 was used to fund ground improvements which would make promotion possible if they were to again win the Combined Counties League.
However, after heavy player turnover (several leaving for Didcot Town, who then won the FA Vase), the 2004–05 season saw AFC Wallingford unable to avoid last place and relegation. The 2005–06 season saw an upturn in fortunes for the club with a runners-up finish in the Combined Counties League Division One, which resulted in a promotion and with it a switch to the Hellenic League Premier Division, a league deemed better suited to AFC Wallingford's location in Oxfordshire.
In 2011, Wallingford set up its first junior teams. In 2013, the still merged club's name was changed to Wallingford Town.
Wallingford Town play their home games at Hithercroft, Wallingford Sports Park, Hithercroft Road, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, OX10 9RB.
