Trains to Theale

Theale station in West Berkshire lies on the Reading-to-Plymouth line, an important branch of the Great Western Main Line. Regular services from Theale connect passengers with a long list of local and further-afield destination across the south, and on weekdays, there is one train per hour to London Paddington, taking about 45 minutes, with more at peak-times, but these often require a change at Reading. The pretty village centre, with its range of small shops, pubs, hairdressers, a pharmacy, library and post office along High Street and Church Street, is a ten-minute walk from the station. The village's amenities, rail connections and Junction 12 of the M4 makes it a very popular place to do business, with Arlington Business Park the largest of several business parks in the village. Close by the station is a large network of waterways including the Kennet & Avon Canal, River Kennet and a range of lakes popular for water sports, fishing and bird watching.
