Whether you are looking for the excitement of a modern city, or the charms of English countryside at its most beautiful, you’re sure to find it in Reading, heart of Royal Berkshire.

Reading is the perfect location to enjoy a memorable break – indulging yourself in 4-star luxury at top hotels, or getting out and about in the wonderful Thames countryside that surrounds us. Filling your time is easy – from shopping in one of the country’s top ten retail capitals (don’t miss the award–winning Oracle shopping complex), walking along the Thames Path and Ridgeway National Trails, or soaking up our vibrant nightlife. But above all, come and share our heritage.

Take in the atmospheric ruins of the medieval Abbey of St James, pass by Oscar Wilde’s Reading Gaol and relax by the Kennet and Avon Canal, a tranquil oasis in the city centre. Then head for the hands-on, family-friendly Reading Museum and study our facsimile of the Bayeux Tapestry.

And if you’ve been thinking of planning a trip to explore the region, you’ll find Reading the ideal touring base. Henley, Windsor, Oxford, and a host of lovely Thameside villages, are all within easy reach – creating magical experiences to treasure forever.
