If drinking in riverside pubs along the Thames sounds like your idea of a good stag do, Reading is your dream destination. There’s way more to this town than a whacking great shopping centre. There’s the Reading Festival for starters. Not to mention a bunch of swanky bars, restaurants, award-winning boozers, sailing, outdoor pursuits, ancient ruins and the Madejski Stadium - home to Reading FC. Add it all up and you’ve got a pretty tasty town with something for everyone from booze hounds to history geeks and adrenaline junkies.
