Places to visit in Berkshire

Visit Berkshire for castle estates set in oak-lined deer parks and picturesque country downs with grazing horses. There's something regal about Berkshire. Dress to impress with top hat and tails on royal race days. You'll see the training yards and gallops in the Berkshire Downs and Lamborne on your country rambles. Drop into bustling Reading for sporting fixes from football to rowing and half marathons. Pack wellies and tents for rock festival season. The chalk ridgeways, meandering rivers and downs make for great walks. Get your bearings of this south eastern county from the summit of Walbury Hill, a former Iron Age camp. Top places to visit in Berkshire include Windsor Castle, the UK Wolf Conservation Trust, Highclere Castle and the scrumptious Fudge Kitchen.
