The Royal County of Berkshire is one of the oldest and most romantic counties in England. It's in the south of England, surrounded by the counties of Oxfordshire, Surrey, Hampshire, Buckinghamshire and Wiltshire, and easily accessible from London. From castles and stately houses to country walks and riverside strolls, Berkshire is the perfect place for an overnight, weekend or longer break, and an internationally famous county deserves an internationally renowned hotel chain providing its hospitality! Fortunately the Hilton Worldwide brand is popular in Berkshire, with several outlets spread strategically across the county.
There's plenty to see and do, too. The towns of Maidenhead, Newbury and Reading all have cosy restaurants, while Wellington Country Park is great for picnics. Windsor Great Park is a 5000 acre deer park, a former royal hunting forest and home to some magnificent oak trees. Make the most of your break at a Hilton Worldwide hotel in Berkshire by exploring everything else this beautiful county has on offer too.
What to See in Berkshire
If you enjoy stately homes, Shaw House is a 25 minute walk from Newbury town centre and just five minutes from the junction of the M4 and A34. The manor house was built in 1581 by wealthy cloth merchant Thomas Dolman. It is associated with King Charles I and was believed to be his headquarters during the Second Battle of Newbury. If you like art, the Stanley Spencer Gallery in Cookham, West Berkshire is an art museum dedicated to the life and work of Stanley Spencer. The art museum opened in 1962 and houses 100 paintings and drawings by the artist. Not only is the museum well worth a visit, but the town of Cookham is too, indeed it was Spencer himself who referred to Cookham as 'a village in Heaven.' Enjoy your stay in a heavenly Hilton Worldwide hotel and you'll be able to access all of this - and more.
