Reading Accommodation

Deciding on a place to base yourself can be a daunting task if you're not very familiar with the area. With a whopping 53 accommodations in Reading to choose from, Wotif's practical filter tool will be your new best mate.

Travelling in style your thing? The Roseate Reading (26 The Forbury) and the French Horn Hotel (Sonning-on-thames) offer an extravagant and pleasant stay. Alternatively, if all you're after is a place to dump your bags and have a decent night's kip, the Hillingdon Prince (39 Christchurch Road) or the Crescent Hotel (35 Coley Avenue) will work nicely.

Car Hire in Reading

Your best option is to go with Hertz when landing at Heathrow Airport. The office is located just a short walk from the arrivals hall.

You won't have any struggles getting your hands on a hire car in the middle of the city, even if you're picky. See if something jumps out at you at Budget (45 Caversham Road). Otherwise, you can call in to Avis (45 Caversham Road) and look around their offerings.

Holidays to Reading

Work meetings, traffic jams, endless chores. It's time to forget about those everyday things and concentrate on something much more fun — planning your holiday in Reading. So, ready to begin with the basics?

Reading is 60 kilometres west of the capital city, London, and 10 kilometres northwest of Wokingham.

Whether you're a lover of facts and figures or not, it doesn't hurt to know how many people inhabit the place you're going to. In this area of Berkshire, the population is approximately 240 000.

How about activities that are totally free? Sounds great, right? Well Reading has heaps of those:

  • Head to the Museum of English Rural Life while you're in the area. It's among the leading free exhibits available.

  • Check out the wonderful surrounds of Kennet & Avon Canal. Snap some photos and find a comfy place to sit — after all, we all need to put the brakes on every now and then.

  • While away an afternoon having a look around the Reading Central Library and the Microsoft UK Headquarters.

  • Watch faithful locals going about their daily prayers and bask in the quiet atmosphere at Wokingham Baptist Church, St. Giles-in-Reading Church, Minster Church of St Mary the Virgin and St. Laurence Church.

  • Step back from the noise of the city streets. Prospect Park, Dinton Pastures Country Park, Forbury Gardens and the UK Wolf Centre are great places to relax and unwind.

Must-see Reading

If you're looking for some awesome photo opportunities, why not make your way over to the University of Reading and Mapledurham House and Watermill? They're some of the city's most notable attractions.

Reading Abbey Ruins is a well-known historical site which offers a window into the long past of the local area. But don't let that be your one and only stop. Browsing the windows at Oracle is a popular activity with the locals. Write out a list and get involved. Eager for more? If you're hoping for a fun night out, book seats to a theatre production at Hexagon.

Places to Visit Near Reading

When you think of iconic sights, you probably think The Big Banana. The Big Prawn. But how about Windsor Castle in Windsor? Around 25 kilometres away from Reading, we promise it'll be just as good.
