Maidenhead Heritage Centre has a range of exhibits which help visitors learn about local history, dating back though the centuries from the Roman period to the Victorian period and the twentieth century. Other attractions in Berkshire include Wellington Country Park near Reading, Silchester Roman ruins, Mapledurham House, Frogmore House, the remains of Donnington Castle and South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell.
