Right on London’s doorstep, Berkshire features a sprawling countryside and numerous picturesque villages, offering an ideal antidote to life in the big city. While its proximity to the capital and its own centers of commerce ensure Berkshire a large and affluent population, the region has managed to retain much of its unspoiled rural scenery, including long stretches of the River Thames. Though most visitors invariably end up sightseeing primarily at Windsor and its royal castle, prosperous Berkshire is much more than an idyllic setting for the Queen’s official residence. Escape the noisy crowds with an alternative holiday in the tranquil countryside, teeming with wildlife and dotted with award-winning restaurants and traditional pubs, where the pleasant company of the locals remains a major tourist attraction. Berkshire is in England. When using our United Kingdom online vacation maker, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
