Almost completely enveloped by the North Wessex Downs in the south of England, the attractive and historic town of Newbury has much going for it. Book car hire in Newbury and don't waste a minute in seeing the very best bits of this destination.

It's a great idea to book car rental; Newbury is packed with delights but there are nearby attractions that are also worthy of some time...

Newbury, in Berkshire, is a tempting slice of quintessential England with a rather posh topping. The home of the real Downton Abbey and famed for its racecourse, Newbury is so much more than aristocrats and nags - though you'll want to form memories around both when you're in this beautiful part of England. 

Located in the western half of Berkshire, Newbury is also a great base for visits to nearby Windsor Castle - the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen. 

Don't go anywhere though before you've discovered more of this waterside market town, which is dotted with 17th century buildings and simply oozes charm. 

Newbury Racecourse is not only a fantastic place to put on your glad rags and see the horses racing around the track - it hosts music concerts and other annual events too. The Queen chose to spend her 86th birthday here, watching her favoured fillies fly. 

Fans of the hit television show 'Downton Abbey' should not pass by the opportunity to visit Highclere Castle, which takes the starring role as the abbey. The house and gardens open to the public, though only during selected holidays and on selected dates. If you want to visit this wonderful place, which is only a 10-minute drive to the south of Newbury, booking in advance is highly advised as the show has seen visitor numbers skyrocket.  

You should secure your Newbury car hire deal in advance too, both to guarantee your preferred vehicle and to get the best price. Pre-book your vehicle, using TravelSupermarket's search tool to find a deal that suits you, and then collect your vehicle at a handy location in downtown Newbury.
