Berkshire Information

Berkshire lies in the South East of England and is famed for its close ties with the British Monarchy. The county is in fact known as "Royal Berkshire" due primarily to the presence within its borders of Windsor Castle.

The River Thames flows through Berkshire and the river helps provide much of the county's character. The Kennet and Avon Canal also meanders it way through the county making it an excellent destination for a relaxing narrow boating holiday.

By far the most popular visitor attraction in Berkshire is Windsor Castle which is an official residence of HM The Queen. The rich history of Windsor Castle spans for almost 1000 years and the castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world.

A fantastic day out for the whole family, Legoland is a theme park dedicated to children from 3 to 12 and is an inspirational and unique place. There are 55 interactive rides, live shows, building workshops, driving schools and attractions and be prepared for a soaking as you follow the pirate trail.
