Having undergone a £750 million regeneration, Bracknell is now a popular destination for visitors who enjoy all the amenities and facilities of a modern town.
Bracknell's oldest buildings in the centre are all pubs, three of which are over 300 years old. Bracknell church is also a place of interest to visitors, being over 160 years old with an interesting history. The look out discovery centre is a hands on nature and science centre aimed at engaging children with fun activities. Bracknell also offers a lot of art to its visitors. In South Hill Park, just south of the town is a large art centre and the town is also home to the Oscar Wilde Theatre. Nearby villages to visit include Barkham, Blackwater and Chavey Down.
The town has its own football team, Bracknell Town FC who play at Larges Lane. However, the town's most successful sporting team is the Bracknell Bees Ice Hockey Club who play in the English Premier League and are National League champions. The town is also represented in rugby, hockey and cricket. Water lovers can visit Coral Reef Water Park, and the John Nike leisure complex has an ice rink and dry ski slope.
Traces of Bracknell's manufacturing past have all but disappeared with the town now hosting a Waitrose distribution centre and head office as well as the head office for BMW. Additionally the town has been very successful in attracting many large technological companies to base UK headquarters in the town.
