The 13 best things to do in Reading

At first glance, the best things to do in Reading won't feel like cultural musts: if you spent your teenage years in the vicinity of this destination in England you might still consider the Oracle shopping centre to be the Home Counties equivalent of The Dubai Mall. But as Berkshire’s biggest town (and it doesn’t have any cities), Reading is home to much more than just a very, very messy music festival. Roll on up for stately homes, shire horses, spa days and street art. Done something on this list and loved it? Share it with the hashtag #TimeOutDoList and tag @TimeOutEverywhere.
