Berkshire is in the south of England and surrounded by the counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Hampshire and Wiltshire. It's easily accessible by road or rail from London and has a wealth of attractions such as Highclere Castle and Ascot Racecourse. The River Thames and River Kennet also flow through Berkshire, so there are plenty of opportunities for riverside strolls. Reading is great for shopping, while Windsor is an attractive town with a number of historic buildings, the most well-known being the elite Eton College, founded by Henry VI in 1440. With all of this to choose from, you might also need some 'me' time to recover! Fortunately the county has more than its fair share of spa hotels too. Stay in a spa hotel in Berkshire and then explore and enjoy all the county has to offer while feeling completely refreshed and relaxed.
Where to Go in Berkshire
Runnymede is a beautiful water meadow that forms part of the Thames Path. Runnymede is the riverside site where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215. Relax by the river, take part in a guided walk or visit the Magna Carta memorial and reflect on 800 years of democracy at Runnymede.
Elsewhere, Shaw House is a 25 minute walk from Newbury town centre and just 5 minutes from the junction of the M4 and A34. The manor house was built in 1581 by the influential cloth merchant Thomas Dolman. It is associated with King Charles I, was believed to be his headquarters during the Second Battle of Newbury and today stands as a wonderful example of an early symmetrical H-plan Elizabethan mansion.
