Holiday destinations: Reading, UK

I travel to Reading regularly on business so today I would like to tell you a bit more about this town.

Reading is a large town on the Thames and Kennet rivers located just 25 min away by fast train from London Paddington. It’s known for the annual Reading Festival and it’s shopping district at the town centre. There are also a few monuments and museums in there including the Reading Museum which contains exhibits on the town’s history and displays a Victorian replica of the Bayeux Tapestry.

Here is a short list of my suggestions of places worth visiting:

  1. Reading Museum:

Hilton Hotel in Reading, UK

Last week I was on a business trip in Reading and I stayed at Hilton Hotel.



Hilton Reading hotel is located 2.5 miles away or 15 minutes drive from the Reading train station in a quiet residential area. 


Hilton Reading hotel has a 24-hours reception and Business Centre, guest laundry, a restaurant and a room service. Wi-Fi is also available throughout the property at no extra charge. If you like to stay fit during your travels then the hotel offers complimentary 24-hour fitness center with a heated swimming pool. You can also relax in the sauna or steam room to rejuvenate after a day at work.


During your stay you can dine in The Larder restaurant that serves a range of International and British dishes. I had some beef brisket for my dinner and it was better than expected.


I stayed in a Queen Guest Room which was spacious and had a contemporary decor.


My room had floor-to-ceiling windows, WiFi, mini-fridge, work desk and ergonomic chair. I addition, there was a large 32-inch LCD TV.

The room had one queen Hilton Serenity bed which was comfortable and easy to fell asleep in.


The bathroom had a white décor and some basic toiletries were provided.


Hilton Reading hotel provides a place to unwind or to catch up on work after a long day at work so if you travel to Reading on business I would definitely recommend it. Its amenities will to help you relax and rejuvenate during your stay.
