Berkshire is not just a home for commuting London workers; it is a thriving, appealing and attractive county in its own right. It is one of the country's oldest counties, yet possesses some of the nation's most modern high-tech industries. This Royal County also boasts Windsor Castle, much of the River Thames and dozens of areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Job opportunities in Berkshire are mainly in the service industries including information services and technology. Major employers include Vodafone, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Amazon, Microsoft, BMW and Mars. The county's economy has been steadily increasing over the past two decades and much of this wealth stays within the county and is reinvested in local industries.
Britain's most famous horse racing ground, Ascot, lies in Berkshire. Reading is home to rugby union and one of the oldest football clubs in the country, Reading Football Club.
Aside from Eton, probably the most famous school in the country, Berkshire is where at least 24 private and prep schools call home. There are also numerous state schools, many of them high performing and the University of Reading is one of Britain's leading research universities.
