The large town of Reading is situated in the county of Berkshire. At just an hour's drive or 35 minute train trip from London, Reading is the perfect place to visit if you're looking to get out of the big city.
Reading was an important place during medieval times. It once had strong ties to royalty. By the 19th century, the country town grew successful as a manufacturing centre and today, it serves as the retail hub for a large part of the Thames Valley.
Rich in history, vibrant in culture, and passionate about sport, Reading is a charming borough to spend a day or two. When you're there, be sure to take in a football game at Madejski Stadium.
