Traffic Information

Car hire in Reading offers you a flexible method of transport that works around your busy schedule. Reading is a well-connected town that has excellent transport links both internally and with the surrounding area. Beneath the town runs the M4, a motorway which runs between London and the South of Wales. The A33 branches off from the M4 and can be used to access the smaller roads within Reading that reach the town's main attractions. As with all large towns, parking spaces in Reading can be limited and it is well worth planning ahead to check for spaces you can book ahead online prior to arriving. Reading has several multi-storey car parks in the town centre that are useful for going shopping or visiting restaurants in the town centre, or avoiding parking directly at attraction parking spaces that often become very busy.

Reading's Impressive Music Scene

Reading is most famous for its music, with the UK's most famous festival held here annually towards the end of August. The festival began in 1961 as the National Jazz and Blues Festival, becoming the Reading Festival in 1971, which was categorised as mostly heavy metal with a hint of punk. Each year close to 90,000 fans make their way to Reading for this festival, making it one of the largest in the UK. Aside from music, the city has plenty of other interesting things to do all year-round. As Reading is situated on the Thames and Kennet rivers, you have plenty of opportunities to enjoy some boating fun during your stay. Boat hire companies in the area offer a wide variety of services, from hiring boats on your own for experienced sailors to operated tours of the scenic waterways in the area.

Sightseeing Destinations

Silchester was originally the centre of the Iron Age Kingdom at the time of the Atrebates tribe (from the late 1st century, BC.). Following the Roman conquest in AD43, it was developed into the town of Calleva Atrebatum. The town featured the Roman's famous street grid pattern, the town was the home of numerous public buildings and continued to thrive until the early Anglo-Saxon era. It was one of the last Roman towns to be abandoned, in around the 6th or 7th century. The town has been excavated extensively over the last 30 years and offers some of the most well-preserved Roman ruins in Britain, as well as being one of the few places that was under continual occupation from the Iron Age.

Basildon Park is a stately house situated in Lower Basildon, Reading. The house has passed into the care of the National Trust, having previously been the home of the Lord and Lady Iliffe. It has been carefully restored in the style of the 1950s, with the Lord and Lady having salvaged fittings and fixtures from across the country to add the finishing touches to their home. The house features exquisite 18th century reception areas that were lovingly restored by Lord and Lady Iliffe in the 1950s, as well as a 1950s kitchen that evokes bygone times.
