Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Perhaps most famous for the annual August music festival, Reading is also home to several smaller music and arts venues. Reading Museum, housed in the Victorian town hall holds regular exhibitions while the Museum of English Rural Life (MERL) recently re-opened after a £3million redevelopment.

Parks include Forbury Gardens, with the famous Mainward Lion sculpture and war memorial, and Palmer and Prospect Parks - but there are also plenty of opportunities for peaceful walks along the river.

Reading enjoys seven miles of unspoilt river frontage and both the Kennet, running through the centre, and the Thames, a few hundred yards north, play an important role in the town’s leisure time. As well as the rowing clubs that line the banks, narrow boats and other craft are often seen through the locks while the Thames Path provides walks through the centre to pubs, cafes and restaurants.

Local Shopping

The Kennet bisects the main shopping centre, the Oracle - offering high fashion, brands and gifts as well as an unrivalled choice of restaurants and a 10-screen cinema – but there are plenty of further retail options, including Marks and Spencer and John Lewis in Broad Street and a good range of independents at the Harris Arcade. And if you want an easy way to kit out your home then there’s the new IKEA store (opened 2016) by junction 12 of the M4.

The next big attraction in Reading will be the Station Hill development, in a three acre site opposite the station. Set to include a mix of office space, shops, restaurants and apartments, this will further improve facilities as commuter traffic increases.

Education

Reading has some leading private schools and two top performing grammar schools – Kendrick (for girls) and Reading School (for boys) – which are both rated ‘outstanding’ plus a number of ‘good’ comprehensives. There is also a wide choice of private schools nearby, including Pangbourne College, Bradfield College, The Abbey School and Reddam House (formerly Bearwood College).

In addition, The University of Reading, with 17,000 students from 150 countries, is ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide (QS University World Rankings 2016/17), with a world-class reputation for the quality of teaching, research and links to business, and is a major employer locally with over 4000 academic and support staff across the 3 main campus locations.

Transport Links

There are more incoming than outgoing commuters at the moment in Reading though this may change when Crossrail arrives in 2019. However, you can already catch a fast train to Paddington in 30 minutes and the motorway is within easy access at junctions 10-12 of the M4.
