5 things to do this summer in Reading

Take a look at 5 of the great things to do in Reading.

1. The Tiger Who Came to Tea - Hexagon Theatre

Join the tea-guzzling tiger in this delightful live show; packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos! A stunning children’s play adapted from the classic family story of teatime mayhem.

2. Forbury Garden

This lovely park in the centre of Reading is perfect for an afternoon stroll with its gravel paths and sloping hills. There are benches dotted around, a bandstand in the centre and a cafe selling hot and cold drinks and food.

3. Mapledurham Lock

The beautiful Mapledurham lock is an ideal place for a spring or summer walk, rounded off with a picnic on one of the grassy banks. The lock is situated near the Mapledurham corn mill, the only working water mill on the Thames.

4. Reading Museum

Biscuits, British art works and a replica of the Bayeux Tapestry are all tucked away inside Reading Museum. Take a look at relics from Reading's history and the fascinating exhibition, Reading at War in the Sir John Madejski Gallery

5. Dinton Pastures

Dinton Pastures Country Park is a haven for wildlife and people alike. We take great care to balance our passion for conservation and the environment with encouraging people to enjoy and cherish our beautiful countryside.
