Slough ‘fun’ fact: Paludians is Slough’s demonym

Slough offers very convenient shopping for me. I like Alexa’s Patisserie in The Observatory shopping centre. It’s a friendly, relaxed place with reasonable prices.

I live close to Slough and like the fact it feels cosmopolitan and eclectic. It also has good transport links as the train goes direct into Paddington, which you can’t say about many places.

Tasty coffee shop on the High Street is really good. It’s an independent shop, but the coffee is better than all the rest in my opinion.
