Reading is a large town and is famous for being home to the Reading Festival, a music festival, which takes place every August bank holiday weekend currently attracting an audience of over 85,000. The festival has been going since 1972 and is a key date in the live music calendar.

The Avon Canal forms an edge to the sites of Reading’s industrial history. Many of the buildings have been re-developed into office, apartment and retail space, breathing new life into Reading’s past.

The ruins of Reading Abbey are in the centre of the town. It is a monastery with royal connections, which has deteriorated extensively over the years. Reading is waiting for funding before work can start to make the remains safe for visitors to enjoy and experience the past, which helped shape the town it is today.

Reading is rated highly for its shopping and dining. There is plenty to choose from, so all you have to do is remember your money.
