Well located

Thanks to the A34 and M4, Newbury is a great base to have when you need to commute to some of the larger towns and cities in Berkshire, Wiltshire, and Hampshire. For example, the stunning cities of Oxford and Winchester, are both under an hour’s drive away. 

With its two train stations, you can enjoy regular services across the UK including journeys to London Paddington, which takes less than an hour. 

For international travel, Heathrow Airport is also under an hour's drive away.

Market town amenities

Newbury has the fantastic tradition of year-round numerous markets, as well as mainstream and independent shops, all within the town’s beautiful streets and architecture.

You also have the neighbouring market town of Thatcham to call on for your extra weekly shop, and the village of Donnington, featuring its very own castle ruins and Gothic mansion.  

A family-friendly haven

As well as the famous Newbury Racecourse, there are plenty of other sports and leisure facilities available, as well as entertainment for all ages.  Another asset for the town is the Kennet and Avon Canal, which provides everyday riverside walks.  

For education, you have three secondary schools to choose from including the ‘outstanding’ rated St Bartholomew’s, plus a wealth of primary options. And for further and higher education, Newbury College also has its campus in the town.
