{{ event.description }}

Slough (pronounced like "how", not like "snow") is a large town just west of London's Heathrow Airport, outside the M25, in Berkshire.

Understand

Slough has something of a negative reputation which can be famously attributed to Sir John Betjeman's poem of the same name. This could also be a result of Berkshire being a stereotypically posh county thanks to the presence of WindsorMaidenhead and Bray. The town has also been featured prominantly in the police reality show Road Wars.

Because of Slough not being too far from Pinewood Studios (6.4km) which is in Iver Heath, Bucks; locals often spot celebrities staying in Slough as a centre point to many places around East Berkshire/South Buckinghamshire.
