The district of Slough lies within the county of Royal Berkshire, England, placed in the Thames Valley. It includes the towns of Kemble, Reading, Slough and Oxford, with the last one on the list also the most attractive one, Oxford.
Use the services like car for rent in Slough on your arrival at the London Heathrow Airport, about 10 km away from Slough. The small town has nothing much to offer except its strategic location, therefore quite all right to be chosen as a base camp. Its local citizens will give you a feeling of being ‘home’, inviting you for a chat at their table in the pub. But the nearby world famous towns of Oxford and Windsor are the real jewels in the crown.
Rent a car in Slough and cruise to the nearby town of Windsor. A huge range of attractions is waiting for you, may you choose even an overnight stay. A must are ‘The Savill Garden’, one of England’s most outstanding gardens and exotic woodland. Each garden is within a garden, absolute astonishing. The historic mansion of Dorney Court dating back to 1440 is another gem with its astonishing furnished lacquer-ware rooms, century old oak trees and the adjoining church of St James from the 13th century; you really feel the vibrant history. Relax a few hours in the nearby ‘Legoland’, pure fun for the whole family with its many attractions and activities, before heading to the world’s most well known residence of the Queen of England the famous Windsor Castle. It is a tremendous feeling to walk along some parts of the park, reminding you that Her Majesty may have passed through the same spot a few days ago. The inside of the castle is most beautiful and hardly can be described in words.
After the excitements of Windsor hire a car in Slough to get yourself back in time when you were a student, dreaming to have had the chance to be part of the world famous Oxford University! No other educational institute in the world can look back to so many nominated scientists as this prestigious university. But it is not only the university which attracts each year hundreds of thousands of visitors, it is the whole surrounding with numerous attractions awaiting you and time passes so fast, you may decide to come back the following day. You can walk or cycle through unspoilt countryside while visiting rural heritage sites, dotted in the lush green nature and amongst lovely bustling market towns, all very near by.
