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!).
Shop ’til you drop with Newbury’s mix of unique independent stores, national brands, and specialist markets; eat breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner at a pavement café or in a cosy restaurant; and while the weekend away with a trip to the theatre, a fascinating visit to the West Berkshire Museum, or a fabulous day at the races.
