Free things to do in Berkshire this Summer

Here are some ideas of free things to do in Berkshire this Summer.

At the time of writing this blog post the government had started to lift some restrictions with regards to Covid-19. Please ensure you follow Government Guidance at all times.

1. Go for a picnic along the River Thames – Windsor, Marlow, Henley-on-Thames and Runnymede are all lovely locations to take a picnic.

2. Feed the Ducks (again, the above locations are all great for this).
