Parking in Reading
It’s easy to underestimate Reading as you speed by on the M4. But this ancient location actually has a lot of real gems tucked away, including a medieval abbey, parks, and even an entire Roman town just eight miles from the centre. It also has a highly respected university and is a hub for high tech industries, computing and communications. Reading is a very busy city, which can make parking a real challenge.
