More and more people are choosing to holiday throughout the UK rather than going abroad and Berkshire is one place that actually gets overlooked. Berkshire is such an underrated part of the UK but it’s the perfect place to enjoy the ultimate staycation. Here are just a few reasons Berkshire should be your next holiday destination.
You can visit some beautiful beaches
Unfortunately, Berkshire doesn’t have its own beach but there are tons that you can visit nearby. There are about 20 beautiful beaches under 2 hours away so you’re really spoilt for choice. The closest beach to Berkshire is in the port town of Lymington in Hampshire. It’s a charming little seaside town and if you’re visiting in summer, the annual Lymington Seafood Festival takes place each August, where jazz and blues meet fresh seafood cooked up by incredible chefs.
There are so many attractions
Whatever you wake up in the morning and feel like doing, Berkshire has got what you need. Fancy a fun day out with the family, why not visit Wellington Country Park- the ‘Biggest Outdoor Play in Berkshire’. In the mood for some history? You can go and see Windsor Castle. Or maybe you fancy visiting the set of Downton Abbey? Well you can at Highclere Castle. Basically when you’re in Berkshire, you’ll never be bored.
It’s consistently named one of the best places to live
Why wouldn’t you want to holiday in one of the best places to live in the UK? Whitchurch-on-Thames (around 5 miles from Berkshire) and Pangbourne, Berkshire are consistently voted the best places to live in the UK. What’s great about the two villages is that they’re connected by a historic and interesting bridge. They’re connected by the Grade II-listed Whitchurch Toll Bridge allowing visitors to easily cross back and forth between the two. Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists go free, while cars pay only 60p per crossing. Both places have charming village vibes and are filled with pubs, restaurants, cafes and points of interest.
North Wessex Downs (Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty)
The North Wessex Downs AONB is a designated protected landscape that straddles the boundaries of not only Berkshire, but Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire too. It covers 173 parishes and it is the third largest AONB in the country covering an area of 668 square miles. It’s protected land but you can still enjoy various walks, cycling routes and even some stargazing whilst you’re there. With undulating hills and picturesque villages, it really is one of Britain’s most beautiful landscapes, to be treasured, protected and enjoyed.
