Berkshire Serviced Offices to Let & Commercial Offices to Rent in Berkshire

 

The County of Berkshire is a ceremonial county in the South East of England. It is also often referred to as the Royal County of Berkshire because of the presence of the royal residence of Windsor Castle in the county. Berkshire borders the counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Wiltshire, Hampshire, and Greater London.

 

The ceremonial county of Berkshire consists of the area controlled by the six unitary authorities; Bracknell Forest, Reading, Slough, West Berkshire, Windsor and Maidenhead (combined) and Wokingham. Historically the county town was Abingdon, but in 1867 the larger town of Reading superseded Abingdon.

 

In the early part of the 20th century, Caversham from Oxfordshire became part of the Reading county borough. In 1974, local government reorganisation moved Abingdon and several other north-west Berkshire towns into Oxfordshire. A later reorganisation, in 1998, abolished Berkshire County Council, although retaining Berkshire as a ceremonial county. Also the northern part of the county became part of Oxfordshire, with Faringdon, Wantage and Abingdon and Hinterland becoming the Vale of White Horse district, and Didcot and Wallingford going to form part of the South Oxfordshire district.

 

The county is one of the oldest in England, dating from the 840’s. Berkshire has been the scene of many battles throughout history including the Battle of Englefield, the Battle of Ashdown and the Battle of Reading. During the English Civil War there were two battles in Newbury.  During the Glorious Revolution of 1688, there was a second Battle at Reading, also known as the "Battle of Broad Street".

 

There are an estimated 1 million people in Berkshire, with the population mostly based in the urban areas to the east and centre of the county (Reading, Slough, Bracknell, Maidenhead, Wokingham, Windsor, Sandhurst, Crowthorne and Twyford being the largest towns) with West Berkshire being much more rural and sparsely populated, with far fewer towns (Newbury, Thatcham, Hungerford and Lambourn). The population has increased massively since 1831; this is largely due to Berkshire's proximity to an expanding Greater London.

 

Noteable places of interest in Berkshire include:  Windsor Castle (the largest inhabited castle in the world), Windsor Great Park (a large deer park of 5,000 acres), Donnington Castle, Eton and Eton College, and the themepark Legoland Windsor.

 

Although agriculture does not play a major part in Berkshire's economy, a number of distinctive cheeses are produced in Berkshire, including Wigmore, Barkham Blue and Waterloo cheeses.
