The Royal County of Berkshire is a home county and is very popular with commuters to London because of its close proximity to the Capital.
Berkshire is home to the world renowned Windsor Castle, Legoland, Highclere Castle, Ascot Racecourse and Windsor Great Park. The county has a good mix of thriving towns with a plentiful supply of pretty villages in stunning countryside. Berkshire is a county in high demand which results hefty house prices but the short commute to London goes some way to making up for this. Schooling in the area is also excellent and makes Berkshire a great choice for families.
