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.
