A Tuesday in Reading?

by Johnp7

I have never been to Reading and have an entire day to myself on Tuesday - Sept 29th. Any suggestions on things to do / see?

Re: A Tuesday in Reading?

Reading is pleasant enough, but is more for shopping than anything else, imo. There are certainly plenty of shops and a massive shopping centre. The toen museum has some interesting bits & pieces, and the Hobgoblin on Broad Street is a good (and somewhat unusual) pub, with a variety of real ales. There is a Museum of English Rural Life incorporated into the university (I have not visited). You can pop across the river to Henley by bus easily enough.

http://www.livingreading.co.uk/visit is the official tourist info site.

You might like to take the train to Pangbourne (10 minutes or so), which has good walks along the Thames either back towards Reading or through the beechwoods on the opposite bank towards Goring (takes around 1.5 hours). Goring is a pretty village, with lock, pubs and railway station for the return trip. www.nationalrail.co.uk for train times and fares.

I agree with leics that you are best taking a train to somewhere else in the area. Reading is not that special or inviting. I know Goring a bit as my husband spent some of his childhood in that area. It's a beautiful, small village and has a nice restaurant overlooking the river. Henley, too, is quite nice and you can see where the famous boat races are held - lots of restaurants.

Hate to disagree but I reckon Reading is a fascinating town just to wander and absorb. There's a lot of interesting history if you can see behind the facades of the modern concrete and glass behomoths. The Abbey is worth a wander as too is the river/canal side. There's the town museum and all sorts of other bits and pieces for "rainy day" things to do.

If it's good weather you can pick up an OY Bike for the day from several locations, including just outside the railway station, - £8 for the day, but you have to register first: www.oybike.com Then take a cycle along the river/canalside - go west rather than east for a more scenic route.

For a decent lunch by the river search out the characterful Bel and the Dragon pub down at Blake's Lock (where's there's also a little museum and gallery space) - www,belandthedragon.co.uk

Plenty to do for a day out and as Leics says there are some good pubs around the town centre including the Hobgoblin. There's also very lively nightlife (even on a Tuesday).

Have fun!

Travel Tips for Reading

You have to visit Henley. It...

by OBT1

You have to visit Henley. It is the home of the world famous Royal Regatta and where the Olympic rowing team is based. The town is situated in a valley in the Chilterns next to the Thames and looks great whatever time of year. This town is great for pubs and restaurants, it’s a very sociable place. The countryside around the town is equally as stunning with plenty of old historical sites to see and many great walks. My favorite past time is to sit in the Angel on the Bridge during the summer with a pint watching the boats and people go by. If you are lucky you might spot one or two famous people in town, it is after all the home of George Harrison from the Beatles. Summer eveinings down at Mill Meadows

Reading

by Geoff_Wright

Reading is infamous for it's Gaol where Oscar Wilde was imprisoned for 'homosexual practices' in 1897 and hence wrote 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol'. Reading has some fine museums including the Museum of Reading, Museum of English Rural Life and the Ure Museum at The University of Reading. I have personally obtained details of old farm machinery from the Museum of Rural Life, and the team there are most helpful.

Reading, Berkshire, England.

I've lived in or around Reading for most of my life, so I obviously have some affection for the place. Reading is a town that is constantly changing. Twenty years ago it was a bit of a dump. These days a lot of the dingier areas have been renovated or completely rebuilt and some bits of Reading are actually quite nice. A good example of this is the Oracle Centre. The outdoors part of which around the canal has a very cosmopolitan feel as there are many restaurants and bars along the canal side.

The title emphasises that this is the Reading, Berkshire in England, as I have also visited a Reading Berkshire in the U.S.!

Many years ago, Reading was famous for the 3 B's. These days there is some dispute as to exactly what the 3 B's stood for (Beer, Bricks?), but there is no doubt as to one of them - Biscuits.

The firm that made these biscuits (which is unfortunately no longer in existence) has had a long and benevolent relationship with Reading. This biscuit making firm is Huntley and Palmers. The biscuits made by Huntley and Palmers put Reading firmly on the map. They were bought out by Nabisco some years back. Whilst Huntley and Palmers may not mean much to people outside the UK, anyone in Britiain of around 30+ or so will immediately know the name.

The Palmer family have, over the years, donated land and money for many different projects all over Reading. This is reflected in names such as Palmer Park and the Palmer building on the University campus. The picture here shows their logo on the entrance to a park close to where their old headquarters used to be. It is still there today.
