      Disadvantages

      Not too bad a town

      OK I hope there is not more than one Bracknell in the UK, but I don't think the picture on this review is actually in Bracknell lol!!

      Bracknell is a good sized town in the county of Berkshire, easily accessible from Junction 3 of the M3 and also easy to get too off the M4. Neighbouring towns include Ascot, Wokingham, Sunningdale and Binfield.
      Bracknell is in part made up of subtowns and small areas such as Martins Heron, Warfield, Wildridings, Great Hollands, EastHampstead and a few others.

      Bracknell has a main train station, and also a train station in th sub town of Martins Heron. There is no A and E hospital in Bracknell, but there is a health centre just off the ring road.
      The main shopping centre is called Princess Square, and is an indoor mall. The outdoor stores are in whats known as Charles Square and there is quite a bit of shopping choice, including a New Look, Topshop, Sallys, HMV and Waterstones. There is a good choice of car parks all located in the town centre, and most of them at reasonable prices.

      There are quite a few clothes stores for Women, but not much choice for men, maybe one or two stores. There is a good selection of supermarkets, including two Tesco's, Two Sainsburys and a large Morrisons. There is also a Frankie and Bennys, Point Bingo, A bowling Alley and an Odeon Cinema.

      The town also has a selection of fast food places such as a Burger King and McDonalds, a large library, a sports centre, Bentalls department store and a few chain coffee shops. Also has a Mothercare and an assortment of hair and beauty places.

      For night life there is a wide selection of pubs including The Bull, The Manor, The Red Lion, The Admirial and The Flying Goose. There is also a night club in Bracknell called Desire, which is open about 4 nights a week, which mostly plays hip hop and R n B music.

      Bracknell does have a slight reputation of young teenage mothers, and a few years ago had one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in Europe! Unfortuantley this does appear to be true, as most of the girls I know who live in Bracknell had their first child around the ages of 14 and 15.

      Bracknell has a newly built large college, known as the Bracknell and Wokingham College, and this is situated just on the end of the town centre, so is easily accessible.

      This town has a fairly good public transport system, with a good sized bus station just opposite the train station, and buses do appear to run to most of the local towns and areas, so you should easily be able to get to where you are going.

      All in All, Bracknell isn't a terrible place, but I am quite glad I don't have to live there, just get to visit those I know who live there.
