Set on London’s doorstep yet totally removed from the stress and smog of the capital, Berkshire is the perfect setting for a relaxing yet fun-filled holiday. The winding River Thames is a feature throughout, and pretty waterside towns like Pangbourne, Goring and Streatley are popular destinations with characterful pubs to welcome you. Windsor, famous for its connections with the royal family, is a must, not least for its majestic castle, but don’t forget Ascot (which is more than just a racecourse), Eton (which is more than just a school) and Hungerford, which is home to some lovely cafes and restaurants.
