Wokingham is quite rightly considered one of the best places to live in the UK. It was declared as one of the healthiest by Public Health England, has a high life expectancy, excellent transport and some wonderful places to explore and discover for those new to the area. It’s also packed with great pubs, fine restaurants and delicious cafes. What’s not to love?!?
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays you’ll find a great range of fresh local produce and tasty treats at the market (held at Wokingham Market Place). It’s a great way to buy gorceries in a more economically friendly way and support local traders and farmers.
As well as the wonderful Wokingham May Fayre, the colder months are celebrated with the Winter Carnival. It’s not like Mardi Gras so wrap up warm, but it’s definitely enjoyable and a big hit with children.
Wokingham is great for shopping, you can leave the high street names behind and support local businesses and find unique items. From clothes to jewellery, cakes to curtains, if you like independent shops, you’ll love Wokingham.
For more entertainment the town also boasts a cinema, theatre, bowling alley and laser games, while the countryside surrounding the town is packed with woodland and nature walks. Dinton Pastures is also a real high point with walks, a Night Run every march plus play areas and canoes to hire.
Wokingham offers excellent transport links as it sits conveniently between the M3 and M4 and a short distance from the M25. Reading, Slough, Woking and Guildford are all easily commutable. By train you can be in central London in under 40 minutes or there are routes alternate routes if you fancy heading to the wild (south) west to escape the bustle of London.
