About Reading

“Why would you want to go to Paris? There’s parts of Reading you haven’t seen.”

- from his film Cemetery Junction and designed to raise a laugh, Ricky Gervais is known for constantly knocking his hometown Reading – however there’s a lot of truth in that statement.

Reading is a historic market town in the center of Berkshire, widely viewed as a major commercial, retail and sporting hub.  Easily commutable to London, Swindon and Oxford (to name but a few), its strategic position makes it an ideal place to live.

Reading is a shopping haven; sports hub (football, rugby, rowing); a thriving, progressive, multicultural business hot spot; has a world class University, an arts hub with a rich history and a plethora of cultural events. It also has a fantastic selection of restaurants, bars and one of the best-known music festivals in the country.

The wide range of options means there’s a choice of activities to suit all tastes! Read on below to find out more about the lovely suburbs of Reading where our homes are located.
