Newbury is a market town in Berkshire.  Surrounded by countryside and idyllic  villages, it offers a hub for independent and high street shops, artisan markets, restaurants and cafes.  First class arts, cafes, and cultural experiences abound. In it’s centre is the  Kennet & Avon Canal.

Newbury is the happiest of the Berkshire towns surveyed. And it is easy to see why. Settled in the stunning West Berkshire countryside on the edge of the Berkshire Downs, the large market town still retains some medieval architecture.Newbury is famous for it’s Racecourse, Donnington Castle and HQ of Vodaphone.

Although it is a relatively small town, Newbury is one of the most prominent urban centers in Berkshire.
