Welcome to this independent website about Slough

It’s a little-known fact that outside of London, Slough is consistently the most successful town in the country.


It’s true. Slough is successful in terms of business, employment and education and is becoming one of the most attractive places in the UK to live and work.


The website doesn’t remain within the boundaries of Slough and although the website hasn’t been specifically put together for schools, students may find it useful if they are working on projects. Among subjects covered throughout the site are:

  • Astronomy
  • Science
  • Engineering
  • Trade and Industry
  • Motor racing heritage
  • Aviation
  • Nature
  • History
  • Photography
  • Art
  • Entertainment and the media
  • Famous people from the town
