Located just to the west of London and within easy striking distance of London, Berkshire is often known as Royal Berkshire because of the presence of Windsor Castle. Reading is its biggest town.
There are many new developments across the county including at Newbury, Bracknell, Reading, Maidenhead, Slough and Ascot from luxury family homes to riverside apartments.
Great rail links mean that you can be in London in well under an hour with trains to Waterloo and Paddington. Good motorway links also ensure that Birmingham, the Midlands and Oxford are not too far away. The M4 corridor also passes through the county, meaning there are plenty of employment opportunities in the area in the field of technology.
Major companies like BG, Nintendo, Amazon and Honda have a presence in the region and the University of Reading also attracts business.
