The Thames-side town of Reading has evolved over the centuries into the largest town in Berkshire and a key commercial and transport hub for the South East. With a huge range of shops and restaurants, Reading serves residents from across the Thames Valley with a vibrant, varied social and retail scene.
Reading is at the heart of the UK’s tech valley, with numerous multi-national companies affording the town of one of the UKs top economic areas, with fast transport links across the South. Consequently, Reading and the surrounding smaller towns and villages have become highly sought after by executives for the quality of life and convenience.
Reading has over 100 parks and playgrounds, including 5 miles of riverside paths along the River Thames and River Kennet to the leafy surrounding villages.
