London, the national capital, is situated 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of Berkshire, while Southampton lies 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the south.
Berkshire isn't the only spot in England worth exploring; travelers should also hit the road and discover the unique qualities of the surrounding landscapes, communities and cultural attractions. Check out the Thatcham Nature Discovery Centre and St. Mary's Church (Thatcham) in and around Thatcham, a place that is 4 miles (6 kilometers), away from Berkshire. A journey to Wantage is another interesting option. It's around 11 miles (18 kilometers) from Berkshire and is home to the Uffington White Horse and Uffington Castle.
Around 5 miles (8 kilometers) to the south of Berkshire is Newbury, an important regional center where you'll find Highclere Castle, Greenham Common and Shaw House. West Berkshire Museum, Newbury Racecourse and Sandham Memorial Chapel are some other interesting attractions worth visiting for those who have more time on their hands.
Sample a little local culture with a little sunshine and fresh air at the region's fabulous gardens, farms and open-air exhibits. For a window into the local culture, head straight to England's theaters, history museums and art galleries.
Finding one of the city walking tours, guided nature walks and wildlife spotting tours is an excellent way to understand about England. Get outside and get amongst it in the area around Berkshire. Try your hand at caving or give horse riding a spin.
England should absolutely be right at the top of your bucket list.
