The Berkshire town of Thatcham finds itself 3 miles from Newbury, 14 miles from Reading and 54 miles from London. It straddles the River Kennet and the Kennet and Avon Canal while following the course of an ancient Roman road.
Much of the area developed as recently as the second half of the 20th century. Today, there are many Afternoon Tea Thatcham establishments to visit.

Despite large portions of the town being relatively ‘new’, evidence suggests that humans have lived here since prehistoric times. In fact, it was once considered the strongest claimant to being the oldest continuously inhabited place in Britain!
Following the Norman Conquest, the Domesday Book of 1086 recorded the settlement’s name as “Taceham”. This changed several times over many centuries until its current name was adopted in the 1500s.
During the Second World War, Thatcham housed one of the biggest Prisoner of War camps in the South of England. Nowadays, however, it is much better known for cuppas and scones! Why not have an Afternoon Tea in Thatcham yourself?
