Trains to Reading West

Reading West railway station lies in the western suburbs of Reading around a mile from the city centre.

It was originally built to serve as a stop between stations in the North and South of the country without having to reverse out of the city’s main station. It’s a staffed station with a ticket office open during the mornings. There are two platforms connected by a footbridge and facilities that include benches, canopy shelters and help points. There are at least three trains an hour direct to Reading in 4 minutes and two an hour direct to Basingstoke in 23 minutes during peak hours.
