Newbury is home to some of the most stunning walking and cycling trails in the South of England, including the tow path along the Kennet & Avon Canal which passes directly through the town centre. It’s also the home of Newbury Racecourse, Donnington Castle, the Corn Exchange and The Watermill Theatre, and nearby Highclere Castle (of Downton Abbey fame!).
