Reading: For The True Lovers Of English Culture


Ever since we stepped in Reading, we could see hundreds and thousands of supporters donned in the blue jersey of Reading FC supporting and cheering for their team’s football match throughout. Although we had no idea about the club, the vibe was so contagious that we started feeling the happiness and excitement too. Reading is a small town but is rich with both culture and history. If you are looking to catch the local culture in the purest form and not mix it up with multicultural flavors, then a visit here is surely recommended. Let us have a look at some places which you must visit if you come here:

  • The Basildon Park, which was built in the 18th century, is a great parkland where you can walk around catch the sites of castles and buildings which are present there since a lot of eras. There are many exhibitions which are conducted by people all around the world. If you visit this place during the snowy season, make sure to plan beforehand, just like how we did, because some of the parts may be closed for maintenance and weather issues.
  • If you are coming as a family and are looking for a small picnic to the river to give you company, then the Beale Park is the place to go. This place overlooks the Thames River, the same one which flows through London and at the same time, you can catch an amazing and exotic collection of both flora and fauna.
  • Stanlake Park Wine Estate is another place which you will need to spend a day in relaxing and sipping wines from one of the finest places in England. Make sure to book a tour here before you visit.

A three-day visit to Reading is required if you need to cover up all the places.
