Travel

Reading is a large town with two major train stations, Reading and Reading West. The bus station is just next door to Reading station and provides good transport links across the town. Its major shopping destinations The Oracle and Broad Street make it one of the top 10 UK destinations and these are both a short walk from the central station. Getting around otherwise is best served by taxi’s and if you fancy a bit of culture head over to The Forbury Gardens, Victorian gardens. 

Tips

Here are a few tips that might help you during your party or group event in Reading.

  • Reading music Festival is one of the biggest events in the UK and has around 90,000 people attending each day of August Bank Holiday, so if you’re not a music lover I would avoid this weekend.

Nightlife

Reading is a fabulous chic city with beautiful surrounding and is a great place to have a stag do party weekend. There are many trendy bars so to make the most of your freedom and head over to the cocktail bars that have exceeded themselves, with ultramodern creations and a top class service.  There are energetic nightclubs, microbreweries, casinos, and theme clubs to give you maximum variety during you party night. The areas around Reading Station including Station Road and Friar Street are compact with a high concentration of fantastic nightlife venues, as well as a huge number of cool chic bars.

In Reading you will find many stylish bars well known for their wild and exotic collections of spirits. The city has a thriving cocktail scene, matching some of the best cocktail cities in the UK.
