The county that featured in Asser’s biography of Alfred the Great written in 893, it was originally named ‘Bearrocscir’, ‘Bearroc’ being a Celtic word meaning ‘hilly’. In the following centuries both county’s boundaries and spellings changed until 1957 when it became the Royal County of Berkshire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, due to it’s long connection with the various royal households and families (40 reigning monarchs in total) that have made Windsor Castle and therefore Berkshire home.
The county does indeed have a royal heritage, it’s also had a pretty storming one, and it’s fair to see the people of Berkshire certainly don’t turn away from a good scrap! The county was on the frontline during King Alfred’s sustained conflict with the Vikings. He set up a number of strongholds in the area to help keep the pesky Scandinavians at bay. In 1070, four years after conquering England and making himself King, William the Conqueror built Windsor Castle, which has been greatly extended over the years, as a means of controlling the local population.
Berkshire was once again right in the thick of things during the English Civil war with two particularly notable battles in Newbury. 40 years later Berkshire saw the only real military action of the short-lived Glorious Revolution when William of Oranges troops swept aside the feeble resistance of James II.
Berkshire also played a huge role in both World Wars, in particular for secret training and bases and airfields for the RAF.
Today, thanks in no small part to its royal connections, Berkshire is one of England’s most visited counties, the castle alone draws in 1,500,000 visitors each year. Modern communications have seen a huge boom in small businesses and start-ups in Berkshire, with design, comms, artisan foods and drink, all at the forefront of the county’s creativity and commercial drive.
Berkshire is most definitely horse country. Newbury, Windsor, Ascot, are just three of the county’s famous racecourses, then there are areas such as Great Windsor Park with miles of riding tracks and is the home of England’s largest polo park.
If horses aren’t your thing, how about Lego? Legoland offers a fantastic family day out with rides, shows and row-upon-row of brick-building genius. The River Thames is another wonderful attraction with historic river cruises, party boats, canoes, kayaks and other types of boat hire.
Foodies will also be spoilt for choice, the county is home to some of the UK’s Michelin starred restaurants including the Fat Duck at Bray, owned by culinary scientist, Heston Blumenthal.
Reading Festival is one of the UK’s biggest parties, attracting huge acts from around the world, while smaller festivals cater for a huge range of different music styles, comedy, theatre, literature and history, so there’s always somewhere to have a good time.
Berkshire is within easy commuting distance of London, with trains heading to Paddington and Waterloo. Motorists have miles and miles of country roads to explore (with fine pubs and hostelries along the say) plus the M3, M4 and M25 motorways bisecting the county. Berkshire also is in the unique position of giving access to the South Downs, the Cotswolds and the West Country. The nearest major airports are Heathrow to the North and Southampton to the South.
