Explore a county with a royal heritage

From the regal Windsor Castle to the Iron Age fort at Walbury Hill, there's a rich history to uncover all over Berkshire.

You can learn about the oldest British order of chivalry, the Knights of the Garter, at St. George's Chapel, take a tour of the stately rooms and boathouse at the riverside Cliveden estate, or see the world-famous Ascot Raceway, where over 300,000 people make an annual visit during the Royal Ascot Races.

There are military collections from the British Army at the REME Museum of Technology, Roman artefacts and Victorian art at the Reading Museum, or you can see the massive, 17th-century royal residence at Frogmore House.

Retire to an area full of natural beauty

With ornamental gardens, royal parks and cruises down the River Thames, there are plenty of scenic landscapes to admire around the county.

You'll find woodland (a rose garden and trees planted by the royal family at the Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park), lakes, meadows and public bird hides at the 300-acre Dinton Pastures Country Park. Great views are plentiful from Walbury Hill, the highest point in Berkshire boasts the furthest reaching views of South East England.

You can watch owls, flamingos and pheasants at the Beale Wildlife Park, a wide range of butterflies and dragonflies at the Nature Discovery Centre in Thatcham, or see over 700 species of plants and animals at The Living Rainforest.
