Many people visit Berkshire because of Windsor Castle, built by William the Conqueror and famous for being the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. However, there's also a wealth of other attractions to be found throughout the county too. Take Reading, for example, with its museum and Abbey ruins, or Pangbourne, a pretty riverside town that's the perfect starting place for a country stroll. There's also indoor go karting and indoor rainforests, helping out on a working farm to hunting for a totem pole in Windsor Great Park. A stay in a hotel with a pool in Berkshire lets you dip your toes into everything else the county has to offer, and then take a dip at the end of the day to relax and unwind!
The River Thames winds its way through Berkshire en route to London. Here you'll find it passes through some delightful towns and countryside, affording plenty of opportunity for meandering and gentle strolling. There are also several locks on the Thames as it winds its way through Berkshire such as Cleeve Lock and Sonning Lock where you can rest and enjoy a cream tea. Swimming in the Thames, however, isn't recommended! Check out your hotel pool if you want to take a dip.
Elsewhere, Forbury Gardens is a public park in Reading where Reading Abbey once stood. The abbey was founded in 1121 by Henry I before being destroyed by Henry VIII in 1538. There was also a school in the grounds which survived the Dissolution of the Monasteries and was once attended by Jane Austen when it was called Reading Ladies Boarding School. The name Forbury is derived from 'the borough in front', was an area of open land that served as a meeting place between the residents of the town and the abbey and is now where the gardens are sited. A stay in a hotel with a pool in Berkshire enables you to explore this beautiful county at your leisure, and then relax in the evening after a hard day seeing the sights.
