Berkshire is a home county, meaning that it is one of several which create a border around the city of London. Like its many neighbours, this is a position which gives Berkshire a lot of advantages over many other parts of the country.
It manages to be close enough to London to reap many of the metropolitan benefits you’d associate with the capital, such as good transport links and potential job prospects, alongside all the cultural and entertainment offerings. However, it also manages to be more affordable than many of the more affluent parts of the city, as well as more peaceful and rural than many other built-up areas. In fact, the advantages are even greater than many other areas near London when it comes to transport, thanks to Berkshire’s place on the Great Western Main Line Railway and the M4; this makes Berkshire perfect for those looking to commute to work in London, but don’t want to pay the capital city prices.
Berkshire also has an amazing amount to offer in terms of culture and local attractions, from bustling bars and restaurants, to theatres, historical sites, rolling parks and farms. Berkshire really does have something for everyone!
