Castles, racecourses and areas of outstanding natural beauty surround Newbury. Whether you're looking to explore Berkshire or simply relax in Newbury town, Newbury hotels are an excellent choice.
The history of Newbury can be traced back to the 11th century, when it was founded as a new borough following the Norman Conquest. The town boasts a number of striking 17th-century buildings while the surrounding area was the site of two battles during the period of the English Civil War. The second of these, the Second Battle of Newbury, left Donnington Castle in ruins. Travel north from the town and you'll find the castle, originally founded by Sir Richard Abberbury the Elder in 1386 and taken under royal control during the Tudor period. Only the gatehouse of the castle survives but the site is definitely worth a visit if you're interested in the area's history.
Also of interest to history buffs are nearby Grimsbury Castle, an Iron Age hillfort that overlooks the Kennet and Pang valley, and Shaw House, built in 1581 by Thomas Dolman who had connections to Newbury's affluent cloth industry. During the Second Battle of Newbury the house was used as the headquarters of Charles I while a battle raged in the gardens. Highclere Castle is also within driving distance of Newbury, a Jacobethan country house that serves as the main filming location for the TV show Downton Abbey.
