Located in Berkshire, Newbury is a great place to explore the heart of the South East. It’s known for its arts venues, great shopping facilities, historic ruins and iconic racecourse. Fans of Downton Abbey will recognise one of Newbury’s most treasured attractions, Highclere Castle. For hotels in Newbury, we have the Mercure Newbury Elcot Park Hotel, a beautiful 4-star country retreat nestled in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A lovely Georgian manor house, the Mercure Newbury Elcot Park Hotel boasts 16 acres of landscaped gardens and views over the Kennet Valley. Guests will be welcomed by our friendly staff and can take advantage of the elegant Orangery Bar and Restaurant, fitness centre, tennis courts and croquet equipment. From the hotel, it’s just five miles to Newbury city centre, where you can visit Shaw House, the largest Elizabethan house in Berkshire, take a look at the world famous Newbury Racecourse, and explore the Living Rainforest, the city’s botanic gardens. Highclere Castle, one of the principal film locations for Downton Abbey, is less than a 15-minute drive from the Mercure Newbury Elcot Park Hotel, where you can visit the castle and the gardens and go behind the scenes of the award-winning TV show. Newbury also boasts some great shopping developments, as well as traditional English pubs and tea rooms. Horse racing is one of the top events here, so it’s well worth timing your trip to coincide with one of the popular race days.
