Park
“In the same neck of the woods as the Museum of Berkshire Aviation, Dinton Pastures Country Park is a destination for activity-packed summer excursions. Comprising seven lakes, the park offers boat hire from March to September, and has wildlife meadows, two cafes, an award-winning play park that opened in 2014 and an 18-hole adventure golf course. The list of boats for hire includes canoes, kata-kanus and kayaks, as well as sailing dinghies if you already have some experience. Open water swimming sessions take place on Wednesday evenings in summer. On a walk or bike ride all year round there’s an enormous amount of wildlife to spot, from roe and muntjac deer to owls and all sorts of migratory and resident waterfowl, waders and passerines.”

Museum
“A worthwhile day out for aviation fanatics, this museum is only ten minutes on the A329 from the centre of Bracknell. The Museum of Berkshire Aviation is at what used to be the Woodley Aerodrome, which was home to the manufacturer Miles Aircraft between 1932 and 1947. The museum displays a number of planes by this company, some of which, like the Miles Student two-seat side-by-side trainer and the Miles Martinet, are the last surviving models in the world. Also extremely rare is the Fairey Jet Gyrodyne, a cross between a helicopter and an autogiro. Miles Aircraft was taken over in the late-40s by Handley Page, and the Handley Page airliner on show outside was built here at Woodley in accordance with a Miles design.”

Backing on to South Lake, The Waterside’s pub garden is perfect for relaxing on a balmy summer evening or meeting friends and family for lunch on a weekend.
