Welcome to the idyllic market town of Newbury in the very heart of rural Berkshire. Steeped in history and surrounded by some of the UK’s most outstandingly beautiful countryside, Newbury offers a relaxing yet vibrant atmosphere in which to enjoy its array of independent and high street shops and restaurants, charter and specialist markets, and first-class arts and cultural experiences.

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!).



There’s so much to see, do, and experience in Newbury’s vibrant and welcoming town centre, including a regular programme of events organised by renowned local arts, culture, and community organisations.

Shop ’til you drop with Newbury’s mix of unique independent stores, national brands, and specialist markets. Eat breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner al fresco at one of our many pavement cafés, or dine in style inside a cosy restaurant. Boasting one of ‘Britain’s best regional theatres‘, catch a self-produced comedy or West End transfer performance at one of our independent venues, learn about our fascinating history and rich heritage at West Berkshire Museum, or enjoy the thrill of the races at one of Newbury’s most famous venues, Newbury Racecourse.

Explore some of our favourite options for leisure activities, attractions, events, and more in Newbury.
