Historic Sites in Berkshire




Donnington Castle
Only two medieval castles survive in Berkshire, out of an original total of nine; the world famous Windsor Castle, the largest fortification in the country and the oldest continuously occupied castle in the world, and the much smaller Donnington Castle, most of which was destroyed during the Civil War, though the fine, three floor gatehouse survives intact. There are no other significant ancient sites in the county.
