Local Information

The team at Cricketts Newbury are all local and have extensive knowledge of the area. We have put together some interesting information on the Newbury area, but please do ask us if there is anything else you would like to know.

Newbury has a fascinating history and is today a thriving, vibrant market town of great character, with excellent transport links right on the doorstep. It is a rural town surrounded by beautiful countryside. Newbury is also encircled by many pretty villages – all within easy access to the benefits of this bustling town.

Nestling in the Kennet Valley, Newbury was founded by a Norman knight in the 1070s, although the British, Celts, Romans and Saxons had all farmed in the area long before then. With Oxford, Winchester and Salisbury just a day’s horse ride away, this busy river crossing was a perfect place to spend the night.


By the Middle Ages, Newbury had a booming textile industry, making it one of the top 20 towns in England. The town received a further boost to its fortunes when Georgian tourists stopped over on their way from London to Britain’s first tourist resort, Bath.

As in the 11th Century, Newbury’s location on the main crossroads between London and the West Country, the south coast and the Midlands, continues to drive the prosperity of the town. London, Bristol and Bournemouth are just an hour’s drive away, and Newbury is now an established commuter satellite for London with approximately half-hourly rail links to and from the capital and a peak journey time of 50 minutes.


There are plenty of events in Newbury’s calendar, including its annual celebration of music, Newbury Spring Festival, the Crafty Craft race, the Riverside Festival and, of course, regular race meetings at Newbury Racecourse.

There’s a good choice of golf courses and health & fitness clubs, and plenty of opportunities for riding, walking and other rural pursuits. The local schools have excellent reputations with many families moving into the area simply to take full advantage of the education facilities on offer for their children.

With all this on offer, is it any wonder that Newbury features regularly in surveys as one of the best places to live in the UK?
