The best things to do in Newbury

Newbury is always reinventing itself. From ancient wool hub to grain-trading hotbed, the town has morphed its way through the centuries – and it’s still doing it in 2020. Between grand houses and endless listed buildings, now you’ll find up-and-coming indie restaurants, a market that champions emerging designer-makers and buzzy pubs serving a young crowd. And then there’s the star attraction for fans of a certain period drama: a nineteenth-century country house with a thoroughly modern-day following. RECOMMENDED: The best day trips from London
