New homes in Reading

Live the Life

Located in Berkshire, the vibrant town of Reading is an exciting place to live with lots to see and do in the local area, and excellent transport links to London and beyond. So whether you love walking through the countryside, going on family-friendly adventures or exploring historic sights, Reading could be the ideal place for your new home.

Things to see and do

Reading is a great part of the country to live, thanks to the wide array of things to do and places to see within easy reach of the town. If you and the children enjoy discovering local history, it’s worth visiting the Museum of English Rural Life, Reading Museum, and the Museum of Berkshire Aviation, where you’ll see a range of artefacts and exhibits. There is no shortage of museums in Reading, with the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology, REME Museum of Technology, and Cole Museum of Zoology also located in the town.

If you like watching sports, you can see football and rugby union at the Madejski Stadium, home of Reading F.C. and London Irish. There are also lots of sporting facilities in and around the town, including Reading Climbing Centre, Central Swimming Pool, Sixplex Endless Indoor Ski Slope and the Burley Lodge Equestrian Centre.

For a relaxing walk and a breath of fresh air, there are a number of parks and green spaces in and around Reading such as Forbury Gardens and Dinton Pastures Country Park. There are also extensive grounds at the National Trust’s Basildon Park, perfect for a Sunday afternoon stroll. You may recognise the house from the popular TV series Downton Abbey.

Other places of interest include the 12th century Reading Abbey and arts venue The Hexagon, while the ever-popular rock music event Reading Festival is held each year on the August Bank Holiday.


Reading is home to a number of excellent schools. St John’s Church of England Primary School, Caversham Primary School, All Saints Junior School, Kendrick School and Reading School are all rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Independent education is offered by a number of institutions including Hemdean House School, The Deenway Montessori School, The Abbey School Reading and Trinity Christian School. For higher education, The University of Reading is one of the best universities in the UK.
