    Why Move to Newbury?

    A vibrant and historical market town, Newbury has made it onto several “best of places” lists.

    Today Newbury is an interesting mix of tradition and progress. As a £250m major regeneration programme which is already under way continues, the towns future is very bright indeed.

    Those living in the area have plenty to do. On the North Wessex Downs doorstep, Newbury is home to several square miles of nature reserves, a world-famous racecourse, whilst just 5 miles south you will find beautiful Highclere Castle.

    Retail offerings for the area can be found along Newbury’s pedestrianized high street as well as in the more recently built Parkway shopping precinct.

    There is a cluster of restaurants on the square, all with tables outside in summer, leading to a splendid bridge over the River Kennet, from which you can enjoy watching the barges and other river activities along its banks.

    Along with all these fantastic benefits you can add “prime commuter territory” to the list.
    Newbury sits right on the M4. Getting around is a cinch. Two departures an hour direct to Paddington (40 minutes) and two or three trains an hour to Reading. Furthermore, it is just a little over an hour from the Welsh border by car.
