Newbury Guide

Guide

Beautifully situated among the West Berkshire countryside, in England, Newbury is a tranquil historic market town that makes a perfect base for exploring the magnificent architectural heritage of the surrounding region.

Explore Newbury

Stunning Highclere Castle is easily the most recognizable attraction, with its proud defensive structures and entrancing ornate rooms. Little expense has been spared in the castle’s upkeep, making it one of the best preserved of its kind in England.

The enthralling Egyptian Exhibition is the legacy of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon who, along with Howard Carter, discovered Tutankhamen’s tomb. Once you’ve been entranced by the castle, take time to stroll through the acres of spectacular gardens. Nearby, you’ll find the famous Newbury racecourse, and the Kennet and Avon Canal.

Newbury is a pleasant town to wander around, with plenty of old buildings mixed with the new. For more exercise, try one of the historic walks that tour the battlefields near the town. These are where King Charles I suffered two crucial defeats at the hands of Cromwell in 1643 and 1644; informative maps provided by the tourist office allow you to relive the battles themselves.

The town still celebrates its historic beginnings with lively markets, held every Thursday and Saturday; bargains include clothing and antiques. Newbury has plenty of quality restaurants, and after dark entertainment is provided by several traditional pubs and tasteful bars. Entertainment of a different nature is provided by the excitement of the races at Newbury racecourse.

There are numerous options for daytrips from Newbury. Just a short distance away is Marlborough, featuring plenty of interesting historic architecture, and Whitchurch, a charming country village. Farther away are the renowned dreaming spires of the ancient University of Oxford. Car hire will get you to all of these great attractions, at your own pace, and for a great price.

Transport

By car, leave the M4 at junction 13 and take the A34 to Newbury; from the M3 leave at junction 9. There are frequent Thames Trains services to and from London Paddington, via Reading, taking about one hour.

To secure a car we advise all tourists to book in advance of travel. We compare prices from over forty leading car hire suppliers to make sure you get the best deal available. Hertz, Avis and Budget are just a few of the well known suppliers we offer.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
