Berkshire is a county in the South East of England with a population of around 865,000. In 1957 the Queen officially designated Berkshire as a Royal County, though it had been recognised as such since at least the 19th century, due to the fact that one of the principal royal residences, Windsor Castle, is located there.
Berkshire House Prices
It is difficult to generalise and produce a truly representative figure when attempting to ascertain the average cost of buying a house in Berkshire. This is attested to by the fact that two leading house price indexes have a disparity of almost 6% in what they believe to be the average rise in what house buyers have to pay to buy property in Berkshire over the past year. The Zoopla house price index claims the average rate of annual house value inflation in Berkshire currently stands at slightly under 10% while, according to Rightmove, that figure is closer to 4%. Other respected house price indexes, such as those published by Savills, Nationwide and Home.co.uk, place the figure somewhere between the two, and some others place it slightly lower.
What all of this indicates is that it is extremely difficult to arrive at an average figure which encompasses and realistically represents all areas within a region as large as Berkshire. Some areas of the county have witnessed almost meteoric house price rises that have led to them being placed firmly within the realm of what many economists have described as the London and South East property bubble. However, there are some areas in the county that have even seen house price depreciation.
Berkshire Culture, Attractions & Things to Do
Berkshire has several tourist attractions and places of interest. The North Wessex Downs are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Berkshire Downs are also a fantastically popular outside space.
Blake’s Lock, The Museum of English Rural Life, The REME Museum of Technology, The Museum of Reading, Slough Museum and West Berkshire Museum are the most well known museums in Berkshire and The Watermill Theatre is the principal theatre in the county.
California Country Park and Windsor Great Park two of the county’s major country parks and Welford Park, Beale Park, Basildon Park, Wellford Park, Greenham Common and Combe Gibbet are among Berkshire’s other popular outdoor spaces.
Besides Windsor Castle, history and architecture buffs can enjoy Reading Abbey, Shaw House, Highclere Castle, Frogmore House, Eton College, Donnington Castle, Bisham Abbey and Calleva Atrebetum.
Two of Berkshire’s most popular tourist attractions are somewhat more singular and specifically tailored. Both Legoland Windsor and The Living Rainforest attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
Berkshire Tradition & History
Berkshire is one of the oldest counties in the country and probably dates to the 840s, when Sunningham, roughly equivalent to the modern eastern section of Berkshire, united with Ashdown, which roughly equates to what is now West Berkshire.
The first record of Berkshire in the written annals of history was when Asser wrote in the 860s that the county derived its name from a large forest of box trees known as Bearroc, an ancient Celtic word meaning ‘hilly’.
Berkshire has been the site of several major battles over the centuries. Alfred the Great fought several epic battles against the Danes in the county, namely the Battle of Englefield, the Battle of Ashdown and the First Battle of Reading. The First and Second Battles of Newbury were two particularly bloody battles fought during the English Civil War and the Second Battle of Reading was the only significant armed conflict to occur during William III & Mary II’s Glorious Revolution.
