Newbury Hotels

Newbury is a large market town set in the idyllic green county of Berkshire, on the banks of the crystalline River Kennet. With a town centre composed of grand 17th century buildings cast in red brick and white stone, and a small but thriving cultural scene, Newbury makes for an intriguing getaway. Shoppers will enjoy the many bijou boutiques that align the narrow streets, and relish at the chance to explore the fresh produce stalls at the farmers’ market.

Things to see

Newbury lays claim to the remarkable West Berkshire Museum, which is situated across 2 of the town’s most historic buildings - the early 17th century timbered cloth halls, which once echoed with the buzzing sound of weavers working away. The museum itself hosts a small but refined collection of stately artwork and archaeological finds. After, visit the Corn Exchange, a huge gold-stoned Victorian building with an expertly detailed angular facade. Once used as a trading spot for various crops, it is now used as an arts centre, and hosts a wide programme of family-friendly events - including dance, cinema, raucous live comedy and an audacious annual pantomime. Just north of Newbury, adventurers will stumble across the ivy-clad Medieval ruins of Donnington Castle, where the war-ravished twin towers of the gatehouse still majestically stand. Finally, as the sun sets, enjoy a glass of chilled wine at one of the canal-side café bars.

Hotels in Newbury

Luxurious Newbury hotels surround the town centre, dotted throughout the soft green fields and beside the calm, lulling Kennet waters. These park hotels and spas provide stellar 4-star service, king size rooms and resplendent flower-laden grounds for those seeking a slice of paradise. In the centre, independent 3-star hotels - set in white-washed 17th century buildings - offer affordable and comfortable accommodation, and provide large 3 bed rooms for a family getaway. A selection of modestly priced B&Bs are speckled throughout the area, complete with cosy rooms, friendly hosts and sizzling fry-ups for breakfast.

Where to stay

Central Newbury puts you in the heart of the town’s wholesome culture and smiley local charm. The narrow streets wind around the historic buildings, housing fine-dining restaurants and old-world taverns hidden in snug nooks, and the shimmering river and canal provide rejuvenating daytime walks. For a quieter, more secluded holiday, stay in the nearby Medieval village of Donnington, where the surrounding countryside is stippled with grand manors and parks. Slightly further to the west of Newbury, a wide expanse of dense, pure woodland offers a camping holiday immersed in Berkshire’s unblemished natural countryside.

How to get to Newbury

Newbury is served by a quaint red-bricked railway station, located a short walk from the town centre. Local services run round-the-clock to nearby Reading and Bedwyn, and inter-city trains to London, Bath and Bristol are frequent, speedy and reliable. If arriving by car, Newbury sits at the western end of the M4 motorway - which runs from London to Bristol - and is connected to the motorway by a short 3 mile A-road. Either explore Newbury on foot, or a selection of private bus companies provide affordable and convenient services around the town and its nearby villages.
