Things to see and do in Newbury

Set into beautiful Berkshire countryside, Newbury is a great place to live if you love going for walks. The North Wessex Downs are just to the west of town, while you can also strike out for the Chase to enjoy the relaxing natural setting. 

With local attractions including Highclere Castle, Sandleford Priory and the West Berkshire Museum, don’t miss the Nature Discovery Centre or the views from Pilot Hill. If you have children then the 4 Kingdoms Adventure Park and Family Farm is perfect for a fun-filled day out. 


Your kids may not have quite so much fun in the classroom, but there are at least a number of strong local schools where you can be sure they’re getting a superb education. Falkland Primary’s catchment area is in the south west of town, while St Nicolas C.E. Junior School and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary are close to the centre. The Winchcombe School is in the north, with all of these schools rated as good by Ofsted. 

Newbury also has three secondary schools in the same Ofsted bracket. St Bartholomew’s School and Park House School are both to the south west of the town centre, while Trinity School is to the north. If you’re looking for an independent school, St Gabriel’s School is an all-through Roman Catholic school next door to Sandleford Priory in the south, which also has a nursery attached. 

Newbury transport links

Newbury has a central train station as well as another by the local racecourse, both of which you can use to get to Reading in less than half an hour. In addition to local bus services, there are also community transport schemes available in the area. 

The M4 motorway passes to the north of town, meaning you can drive to Reading in the west in around an hour, with London to the east a little further away. You can use the A339 to get to Basingstoke in around 20 minutes, while it’s double that to Southampton along the A34.
