Wokingham Things to Do

    The Terrace is a row of old houses that are elevated from the road and bordered from the street by a small lawn and some railings. The Queens Head Public House can be found in the middle of the Terrace.The Terrace is a well known view of Wokingham as it appears in many old paintings and drawings of Wokingham from olden times.

  • The Lucas Hospital (almshouses)

    The Lucas Hospital is the only Grade 1 listed building in Wokingham, and is a bit of a secret even to a lot of the locals. These almshouses were started in 1663 and completed in 1666 after Henry Lucas left money to build them. They were built to provide shelter for the poor in the Wokingham area.Being Grade 1 listed, planning permission is required...

  • Old Victorian Horse Water Trough

    Wokingham is littered with old bits of history, and one of the more unusual curios is an old horse watering trough. It has a stylised fish built into it. As there is little demand for watering horses these days, it is usually used as a planter for flowers and bulbs. It dates back to 1881 and is alongside the Old Town Hall (see relevant tip). Just...

  • Bravo Rossini

    The ambience is very authentic, although the business lunches and evening suppers feel very different. It's romantic for couples but also perfectly suitable for larger groups. The staff is very friendly and efficient, and happy to give you a little longer to make your selection from a slightly limited menu.The bruschetta are delicious - you'll...

  • Most authentic I've found yet

    A friend recommended this restaurant to me and I have to say that it's the most authentic (ie closest to food I ate in China) that I have found over here so far..It's a bit quirky - there are 2 evening sittings, first sitting finishes at 8:30 (no matter what time you got there), second sitting starts at 8:30 and runs to 11pm..Service is as you...

  • Rubbish Rossinis

    I had been told about Rossini's as soon as I moved to Wokingham. It was billed as the best Italian restaurant in the town so when my parents came down to visit I was delighted to be able to make a booking.However, although the restaurant has a really nice feel with friendly staff and a sweet trolley to make the mouth water, the food was simply a...

  • Fresh sweet pepper bread - can you smell...

    The Grill Bar in Wokingham is great for a group meal or a quick lunch as the food is quick and simple. The thing which makes it most delicious is the freshly made loaves of bread which you can choose as you enter which is then provided free with a large plate of olive oil and balsamic vinegar - delicious! Their pink grapefruit salad dressing is...

  • Enormous Naans

    The Sultans Balti house in Wokingham is really really tasty. They do massive Naan bread which takes up the whole table, the curries are always delicious and not greasy and the staff are always keen to help. If you want a good curry just ask them to recommend something to you. Their lamb dishes are particularly good and melt in your mouth. Its...

Wokingham Nightlife

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THere isnt much of a nightlife in Wokingham in terms of clubs except the dreadfully named Eternity - probably a place I will never visit!

    There are absolutely loads and loads of pubs though which could suit every taste - apparently Wokingham has more pubs per head than any other town in Berkshire -it has styles to suit all tastes so why not try them all till you find one that fits. My fave is the Lord Raglan for a nightcap as it has armchairs beside the fire. An alternative spot which is always packed is the Ship - althought its a bit smoky or the Molly Millar for watching any sports events.

    Dress Code: No dress code really there are only bouncers on a couple of pubs and these are usually just for underagers

Wokingham Shopping

  • craft village

    We discovered a little craft village just outside Wokingham where there are several "different"shops including a shop selling homemade Belgian chocolates, children's clothes, christmas gifts and other interesting cubby holes. Its always a treat to discover an independently run shopping area which breaks from the usual high street stores - come out...

    Lets face it Wokingham is a small town and the shopping centre is not New York but it is a nice place to get bits and bobs and after London its nice to see shop assistants who look you in the eye and really try and help you find what you are looking for. The shop I have mentioned above is a card shop which also has a nice selection of little gifts...

Wokingham Off The Beaten Path

  • Californian Redwood Trees at...

    One of my favourite spots in the local area. Wellingtonia Avenue consists of around 100 Californian Redwood trees and was planted in 1863 to commemorate the Duke of Wellington.Around 20 years ago a fungus threatened to wipe out the trees, and one died, but fortunately the rest were saved.Even if you just drive down the road, it is well worth...

  • busy Berkshire's quiet retreats

    Berkshire is a very busy region, what with there being a great deal of industry and London being commutable distance. If you do want to get away there are some really nice parts of countryside. Twyford Lakes is a wildlife reserve where you can access easily by train or car and do a 6/7 mile walk round the water through the woods - I cant guarantee...
