  Reading Town Hall
by easyoar
 
 

Reading has historically been famous for the 3 B's. There is no debate that two of these B's were Biscuits (Huntley and Palmers - see separate tip) and Beer (there is still the Courage Brewery by the M4 junction today). There is however some debate as to whether the Third B stood for bricks. There is no doubt however that as you go through Reading you will see a lot of impressively built brick buildings from yesteryear. The Town Hall (which also houses the Reading Museum) is a good example of one of these buildings.

Directions: Just behind M&S. Head to wards the Queen Victoria's statue, and you can't miss it.
