More information about Thatcham

Thatcham, the small market town in Berkshire, is a unique location which has managed to develop strong links and connections to the car industry, finance industry and motorsport, while still retaining its rural charm. With a population of just over 11,500 (as of 2019 estimates), the town has seen significant development and growth in recent years, thanks largely to its involvement in the motor industry in the UK.

The town is most renowned for its links to the motor industry and its role as the UK's centre of car insurance. Thatcham is currently home to the Thatcham Research Centre, a world-leading automotive technology centre specialising in vehicle safety and security. The centre is the UK insurance industry's research facility, supporting insurance industry stakeholders by researching, evaluating, testing and assessing technologies for the prevention of vehicle theft, component theft and vehicle damage.

Established in 1969, the Centre has put Thatcham firmly on the map as the hub of Britain's car insurance industry. It is the only research centre in the UK which is recognised by a national government. The centre informs and influences key decisions made in the insurance industry and continues to be the industry-leading authority on automotive safety and security.

Thatcham is also home to Auto Trader, one of the UK's largest digital automotive marketplaces. Founded in 1975 in Thatcham, Auto Trader has become one of the most recognisable names in the industry and its growth in recent years has only served to strengthen the town's links to the motor industry.

Away from the motor industry, Thatcham is also home to a number of financial institutions and has become increasingly important as a hub of finance within Berkshire. Thatcham was a key location in the development of Britain's insurance industry and it remains the financial hub for many of the companies that have developed in the area.

Thatcham is also strongly linked with motorsport, with a number of racing car workshops and teams based in the town. The Thatcham Motor Racing Club has established itself at the heart of the town's motorsport scene, hosting various events including sprints, hillclimbs, karts and car rallies. The Club also hosts an annual Classic Car show, bringing out a wide range of cars from all eras.

With its strong links to the motor industry and finance, combined with its unique motorsport culture, it is not hard to see why Thatcham has grown so much in recent years. Its rural charm and popular motor industry connections have created a unique and attractive place to live and visit.

Thatcham is a predominantly white British town with 94.7% of the population being of White British ethnicity in 2019. The town has seen an influx of foreign born residents as well with 6.1% of the population being born overseas. The majority of these come from Asia, with 3.7% of the population being Asian, mainly Indian and Chinese. The town also has an older age demographic, with the majority of residents (46.4%) being over 55 years of age.

Despite its strong links to the motor industry and finance, Thatcham recognizes the importance of preserving its rural nature and maintaining a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Thatcham remains a vibrant and attractive rural community, offering a warm welcome and a wonderful opportunity to invest and live near the centre of Britain's motor industry and finance sectors.
