Living in Thatcham

Entertainment and leisure

Small rural towns can be considered too quiet or slow for some residents, but that isn’t the case with Thatcham. A new build here will grant you access to historical attractions, parks, sports facilities and more.

We’ve already mentioned the walking and cycle trails in and around the town, but you can also get active at the Kennet Leisure Centre or the rugby and football clubs. Kids can try Go Ape or play at the Nature Discovery Centre, or take a walk along the Kennet & Avon Canal. Thatcham Family Fun Day is a highlight of the calendar, which features a colourful funfair with games and stalls that all the family can enjoy.

And when you’ve had enough of running about, get comfy in one of the many classic country pubs that this town has to offer, chatting with fellow residents over a drink as the sun goes down.

Part of this market town’s energy comes from its proximity to other towns and cities, the closest of which being Newbury. This town sits halfway between Southampton and Oxford, and London and Bristol, demonstrating how easy it is to travel to these cities from your new build in Thatcham.

It has its own train station, which provides direct routes to London and Reading. It is on the A34, and the M4 is also accessible. This is why the town is becoming popular with professionals - commute times are generally short and simple, with the wider UK just a quick journey away.
