Visiting Reading

With a 1200 year heritage Reading has over 850 listed buildings and structures, although it’s now perhaps best known for the rock festival it hosts every year. Visit the Museum of Reading to explore the town’s history, or the Museum of English Rural Life to discover more about life and work in the countryside.

Cemetery Junction is a cosmopolitan area, so named after the large cemetery which has several memorials of historical interest. Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant’s 2010 film is set here.

Tips: Reading has seen a surge of quality independent restaurants and is a great place for dining.
