A ceremonial and historic county in England, Berkshire is often called the Royal County of Berkshire, due to it being the location of Windsor Castle. It shares a border with Oxfordshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Wiltshire and is counted among the Home Counties. It's also an excellent location for those seeking vacancies.
Berkshire is one of the oldest counties in England, with a history going back to at least the middle of the eighth century.
Eton College was established in the 15th century and is one of the most renowned public schools in England. It has educated 19 prime ministers, as well as notable scientists, authors and members of the royal family.
In 1810, the Kennet and Avon canal opened, making it possible to travel by boat from Reading to the Bristol Channel. The building of the railways also helped to further establish Berkshire as an important part of the British economy.
During the Industrial Revolution, the region was known for its large iron works, as well as brewing.
Today, Berkshire is home to a number of big businesses in sectors including confectionary, communications, technology, energy and pharmaceuticals.
Just some of the companies that can be found in the region include Amazon.co.uk, Honda, Panasonic, Siemens, Sun Microsystems, Vodafone, Bayer, LG and Microsoft. There's also a Waitrose distribution centre and the headquarters of NTS Express Road Haulage.
