Reading

Now is the time to stop daydreaming! With so many cultural and scenic sights, you'll want to start arranging your Reading getaway as soon as you're able.

This is an area of Berkshire that 240,000 people reside in.

It is 35 miles west of the national capital of London. It's also approximately 6 miles southwest of Henley-on-Thames.

Ensure everyone in the family has a good time by visiting a few of the child-friendly activities of the area. Good times and precious moments await at Bucklebury Farm Park, UK Wolf Conservation Trust and Predator Assault, Laser Combat.

If you enjoy native and exotic animals, put the Beale Park on your itinerary. If you are pressed for time, stop at the information center and grab a map so you don't miss any of the park's key exhibits.

Pack some lunch and take it easy for a while in the peaceful, green surroundings of Prospect Park and the Basildon Park. There's also plenty of room to relax at Wellington Country Park and Forbury Gardens.

See the world in a new light by spending some time at one of the area's fascinating cultural spaces. Savor the quiet and relaxing atmosphere as you check out the unique collections at the Museum of English Rural Life and the Museum Of Berkshire Aviation. The Reading Museum and Town Hall and the Museum of Reading are also worthwhile.

Wander back through the ages with a trip to the University of Reading and Mapledurham House and Watermill, just two of the historic buildings and sites here. You might also like to get the camera out for some photos at Reading Abbey Ruins and Stratfield Saye House.

The world's religions are as varied as they are old. Wherever you journey, this is reflected in each destination's customs, traditions and architecture. Spending an afternoon appreciating the tranquil vibe of St. Giles-in-Reading Church, Minster Church of St Mary the Virgin or St. Laurence Church is an excellent way to see this destination's spiritual side.

Your getaway wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Microsoft UK Headquarters, one of the area's most photographed landmarks.

Visitors of all ages will find something that interests them at the Reading College, a highly popular educational institution. Those who finished school years ago will appreciate the modern facilities, while future students can sample what's to come.

If you like to grab a bargain, discover a few of the busy shopping hubs. Begin your journey at Oracle, John Lewis Reading or Broad Street Mall.

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to be entertained! People of all ages will love catching a show at the Hexagon or the Progress Theatre. The Mill at Sonning and the South Street Arts Centre are two more popular facilities that you're guaranteed to enjoy.

Rub shoulders with the locals over a round or two of golf at the Caversham Golf Club. Once you've sunk the last ball and tallied up the score, head on over to the 19th hole and finish up your day with a well-earned beer. You can also whack a few balls at the Bradfield College Golf Club and the Wokefield Park Golf Club.

Reading's most famed sights can overshadow its less renowned, but equally rewarding activities. The Reading Central Library and the UK Wolf Centre might be just what the doctor ordered. Also, think about checking out Reading Civic Centre and Lagoona Park if you have time.
