‘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 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.
