Located roughly halfway between London and Bath, Newbury was long an important stopping point for travellers even before the railway arrived in the town in 1847. The current red-brick station buildings were built in 1910, as was the covered footbridge across the tracks. Historically Newbury was a market town, built on the cloth and the corn trade – today its Corn Exchange is a popular theatre and arts centre, and the town’s biggest employer is Vodafone UK, whose 30-acre headquarters is just north of the centre. Newbury station is to the south of the town centre, and it is a short walk to the main shopping streets around Market Place and the river. A little further to the north is Donnington Castle. Newbury is also well known for its racecourse, venue for the Gold Cup each November. The racecourse is a fifteen minute walk from the town and is served by its own railway station.
