Why book a Reading hotel?


This large town in Berkshire is a shopper's paradise with everything you could possibly want in one place. Why not take a stroll along the busy high street with its independent stores, quirky boutiques and high end Jewellers before enjoying the Oracle shopping mall with its fashion brands and choice of eateries. If you are looking to explore the rich history of the town there is no better place to start than the Museum of Reading, a masterpiece of Gothic Victorian architecture, which houses Roman artefacts as well as the world's only full size facsimile of the Bayeux Tapestry. Another must see are the remains of the majestic Abbey, which for 400 years was the political, economic and social centre of Reading. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle there is no better place than the Forbury Gardens, a delightful example of Victorian formal gardens, they still follow the original layout of 1855. With its great location there are a number of family friendly attractions within a short drive of reading such as Windsor Castle, the Queens official residence and the Legoland theme park.
