With lovely scenery and a royal seal of approval, Berkshire’s great for a break. And it’s only 45 minutes from London - always nice.
Windsor Castle is the big draw if you love pomp and splendour and the nearby Legoland resort keeps the kids happy. You can also relax in the woods and pastures of the North Wessex Downs or (if your timing’s right) rock out to the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Run the Jewels at Reading Festival. Pro tip – don’t camp next to the toilets.
There are lots of lovely villages to mooch around. Pangbourne inspired Kenneth Graeme to write The Wind in the Willows and Newbury, Hungerford and Hurley are also worth checking out.
Fancy a flutter? Head to Royal Ascot for the gee-gees - just don’t gamble what you can’t afford to lose!
Castles. Festivals. Scenery. Berkshire’s got it all going on.
Windsor castle is the largest inhabited castle in the entire world... and who remembers when Ali G truly put the Staines massive on the map?!
