Located just 36 miles west of central London, Reading is a hotspot for commuters and tourists alike.
From shopping and lifestyle to sport and entertainment, we’ll be bringing you the very best that Reading has to offer…and everything else in between!
Ranked as one of the top ten retail destinations in the UK, The Oracle Shopping Centre is bursting with big name department stores including Debenhams, House of Fraser, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer.
As well has being a haven for shopaholics, there’s also plenty for culture vultures to enjoy too. At the centre of the town lies The Forbury Gardens; a beautiful Victoria garden, that houses the historic Reading Abbey. As well as an abundance of museums such as The Cole Museum of Zoology, Reading Museum and the Museum of Berkshire Aviation.
If you're feeling a bit peckish after all of that sightseeing, Reading offers an unrivalled choice of stylish restaurants, bars and cafes for you to grab a bite to eat.
