Terry's Reading Walkabouts, Reading

5.0
#2 of 10 in Tours in Reading
My standard walk takes about 2-3 hours and takes in the following (not in order):-

• Harris Arcade, Town Hall, Important Abbey history, Forbury gardens (inc. the grizzly end of the last Abbot) & Reading Gaol!

• River Kennet & Canal towpaths

• Shopping, Restaurants & Leisure

• English Civil War & the very important part Reading played in ‘The Glorious Revolution of 1688’

• Reading's strategic position, the importance of the coming of the Railways and Reading's rapid growth

• The Devastating WW2 Air Raid in central Reading & past Military campaigns

• The 5 B's that made Reading famous inc. the site of what was the world's biggest biscuit factory

• Plus plenty more and I will try to answer any questions you may have on the way.

NB I have added a New walk covering Reading's proud Theater & Cinema heritage, The Thames River & Caversham now available. Ideal for Spring to Autumn. While not bring a picnic to have when you have finished.

PLEASE DO NOT TURN UP BEFORE BOOKING WITH ME BY PHONE FIRST.
