Travel Tips for Reading

Reading Amateur Regatta

by easyoar

In mid June, Reading Amateur Regatta along the banks of the River Thames in Reading. In 2005, the Regatta will take place on Saturday 11th June 2005 and Sunday 12th June 2005.

The Saturday sees crews racing over 1500m, and the Sunday over 1100m downstream to the finish just before the rowing club. As the river is only wide enough for 2 crews to race comfortably side by side, the heats tend to take place in the morning, semi finals in the afternoon, and finals in the early evening.

The banks of the Thames get very busy with spectators, and the good news is that as long as you can find somewhere to park, it is free to come and watch! Reading Rowing Club is just behind the Caversham Hotel. For more info see:

Whimsical brickwork

by KennetRose

Thomas Hardy called Reading 'Aldbrickham' - the old brick town. Jude the Obscure began his final decline here. As well as some very elegant nineteenth century brick buildings, as for example in London Street, there are some splendid examples of the bricklayer's whimsy. A good place to find them is in the streets around Oxford Road.

Blake's Lock Turbine House and Museum

by johngayton

Having enjoyed a decent lunch at Bel and the Dragon, along with a few beers of course, it was time for a little cultural/historical break before the next pub. Next door to the Bel are a couple of interesting little buildings showcasing part of Reading's riverside history.

The two buildings are: the Screen House and the Turbine House. The Screen House contains an ornate Gypsy caravan, with an accompanying video, a medieval mill wheel and a little museum giving an insight into the town's industrial history. The Turbine House has preserved turbine machinery and doubles up as an art exhibition space.

Entry to both is free and the next pub isn't far away!

Art on the Streets

by SMeeds

This is part of a set of photographs I took of 'art' that can be found around Reading. I am not making any statement about what I consider art, or what is good or bad, just what is there.

The sign on the former Huntley and Palmer's biscuit factory. Reading was once known as "the three B's" for its main industries: Biscuits (Huntley and Palmer's), Beer (Courage) and Bulbs (Sutton's Seeds). The area is now known as the British "Silicon Valley" because of the concentration of high-tech industries.

Reading College on King's Road.

The Maiwand Lion in Forbury Gardens. Said to be the largest lion statue in the world. Apparently a lion could never stand in this pose - it would fall over. When the sculptor was told this, it is said, he committed suicide.

'Adam, Libby and Karen' near St Lawrence's Church.

A sculpture on the Kennet cycle path.

This clock near the civic centre was once part of a water feature, but is shown here with Reading Borough Council's logo in the foreground.

This relief, also near the civic centre, illustrates a traditional story from Reading's twin town, Dusseldorf, in Germany.

A frieze on the wall of Broad Street Mall, missed by the passers-by unless they look up.

This statue of a monk near to Reading Abbey has since been replaced with another sculpture.

The logo outside the Eagle Star insurance offices in King's Road.

Old shop advertisements on Oxford Road.

The railway bridge over Oxford Road near Reading West Station.

Brewery advertising.

Canal art on the Jolly Anglers, sadly now painted over. This pub is on the Kennet cyclepath which runs between Duke Street and Kennet Mouth where the River Kennet runs into the Thames (see another travelogue).

Paintings under a bridge on the Kennet cyclepath.

...and the other side of the bridge.

...another of the bridge
