Reading Travel Guide: 225 reviews and 391 photos

Reading has been my home for the past 3 years.
For those of you who are not aware, Reading is situated about 35 miles West of London.
Obviously its not as big as London, but its got a few things that would attract you to it.
One of which being the very famous Reading Festival. It takes place every August over the bank holiday and literally thousands upon thousands of people flock to Reading to see their favourite bands in action.
Reading also hosts an annual Beer Festival, which is very popular amongst those beer connoisseurs out there.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Many good Restaurants, Bars and Shopping Facilities, and good connections to London

    I live in Reading and yes, the Oxford road is a grotty place best avoided- especially ZinZan street.

    That boat on the cover would be enough to lure me to Reading. Love that river walk. Wonderful sunset photo. Good job.
