Reading

Reading is a large, historically important town in Berkshire, England, of which it is the county town. Explore hidden gems such as Silchester Roman City Walls and Amphitheatre and Reading Museum. Get outdoors at Divecrew and Horseshoe Lake Activity Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Reading: Windsor (St. George's Chapel & Windsor & Royal Borough Museum), History on Wheels Museum (in Eton Wick) and Newbury (Highclere Castle, Sandham Memorial Chapel, &more). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of The Museum of English Rural Life, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Minster Church of St Mary the Virgin, see the interesting displays at Museum of Berkshire Aviation, and browse the range of quality goods at Marks & Spencer.

Right on London’s doorstep, Berkshire features a sprawling countryside and numerous picturesque villages, offering an ideal antidote to life in the big city. While its proximity to the capital and its own centers of commerce ensure Berkshire a large and affluent population, the region has managed to retain much of its unspoiled rural scenery, including long stretches of the River Thames. Though most visitors invariably end up sightseeing primarily at Windsor and its royal castle, prosperous Berkshire is much more than an idyllic setting for the Queen’s official residence. Escape the noisy crowds with an alternative holiday in the tranquil countryside, teeming with wildlife and dotted with award-winning restaurants and traditional pubs, where the pleasant company of the locals remains a major tourist attraction.
