Coach Hire and Minibus Hire in Reading

As one of the largest towns in the UK, Reading has a lot to offer, regardless of your tastes or interests. The town is positioned on the banks of the Thames and Kennet rivers and is less than an hour away from London. In recent years it has become something of a cultural hub with the Reading Festival rising to ever greater prominence. The town has also inspired many works of literature, including Jane Austen's unfinished novel, "The Watsons."

Beyond Reading's cultural influence, visitors can explore historical landmarks like the medieval Reading Abbey ruins and the Forbury Gardens, as well as enjoy shopping and dining in the Oracle shopping complex.

Reading's blend of history, culture, and contemporary attractions make it an exciting and diverse destination in the South East of England. Whether you're interested in entertainment, food, or history, Reading has something for all types of travellers.
