1. Where it’s situated

Situated approximately 30 miles west of the capital with superb connections to London, Bracknell offers the perfect balance between the peace and tranquillity of outer city living and the vibrant city streets, attractions, and bustling business hubs of central London. Bracknell Forest embraces small, historic towns and villages including Crowthorne, Warfield, Sandhurst and Winkfield, all of which offer a superb choice of modern and traditional housing. Bracknell is  a leafy green suburban area situated within convenient proximity to central London, Royal Ascot & Windsor and the busy town of Reading.


  1. The New Town Centre

The regenerated town centre known as The Lexicon cost £240m to build and was opened in September 2017. The regeneration has created a new social and cultural heart for the area, by bringing a high-quality mix of shops, restaurants, entertainment and vibrant public spaces to the town. There are beautifully designed indoor and outdoor shopping areas alongside brilliant entertainment and leisure facilities.

The next addition to Bracknell town centre will be The Deck; an area that was previously the Bentall’s department store. The Deck will be home to many of the town’s new eateries and shops and will eventually link up to Princess Square. Councilor Marc Brunel-Walker stated that while the “retail market is tough” across the country, Bracknell is bucking these trends, with “strong footfall and sales figures”. It’s anticipated that The Deck will be completed by 2022.
