Slough Hotels

Mini guide to Slough

     

Set in Berkshire, Slough has been the production centre for the famous chocolate Mars bar since 1932. A quiet town as far as the tourist scene goes, its proximity to the capital and other popular Berkshire areas such as Reading makes it a pleasant place from which to explore the south of England.

Popularised by the BBC's internationally famous comedy 'The Office', Slough is far from being the dull grey city that it might first appear to be. It has a rich and interesting history that is visible in its buildings, with the 900 year old St Laurence's Church in Upton being a fine example. St Mary's Church in Langley, dating back to the late 11th or early 12th century, is also noteworthy.

Slough is home to a selection of charming villages, each with its own unique history.
Chalvey dates back to 1217, while Cippenham once featured the palace of Henry III and Colnbrook was known as a place of respite for travellers along the great Bath road from London to the west.

Slough has a reasonable range of restaurants with American, Italian, Oriental and Indian cuisine on offer alongside a good selection of traditional British eateries. Nightlife may be somewhat more sedate than in bigger cities, but pubs, cinemas and theatres are all available, as well as a number of wine bars.

For a day out from Slough, take a trip to Ascot, home of some of the country's greatest horseracing. If horseracing is your thing, then plan your trip around one of the big meetings. Saturdays and Bank Holidays are popular; however, it can get crowded.

By road, Slough can be reached by taking the M25 or M4 motorways or by rail it's a 20-minute train journey from London's Paddington Station. Heathrow and Gatwick international airports are only a 10- and 45-minute drive respectively.
