Visiting Reading

A gorgeous, historical town that's just close enough to London for convenience, but far enough away from it for comfort, Reading is the jewel of Berkshire and a town of culture, business and plenty more besides. Set on the banks of the Thames and Kennet rivers in the south of England, Reading is renowned for its annual music festival, which has attracted some of the biggest names in popular music for decades and is rivalled only by Glastonbury as the UK's biggest festival.

There's plenty more to discover on either side of the August bank holiday though. The town centre is dotted with shops and unique riverside restaurants and there is a great deal of history and culture woven into the fabric of the town. The Reading Museum is one of the most fascinating in the country, with a Victorian replica of the Bayeux Tapestry that draws in history buffs from across the globe. Being on the famous River Thames also has its advantages, as there are plenty of water-based activities to explore; from the famous Thames Lido to the Lagoona Aqua Park.

There are also many educational experiences to be found in the area. From the indoor Living Rainforest to the 12th century Abby Ruins, there's plenty going on to expand your horizons. That includes a thriving local arts scene and, of course, a wonderful live music scene.

Coach Pickup Locations in Reading

 

Our coach and minibus operators know Reading well. Here are some popular coach pick up locations to inspire your trip:

 

Coach Hire Reading

If you are planning a journey to or from the world famous Berkshire town of Reading at any point in the near future and you're travelling in a large party, you'd probably be wise to consider hiring a coach for the occasion. Organising a train journey or car share situation for a large number of people can prove incredibly frustrating and costly. Hiring a coach can take the lion's share of the stress out of the situation and could also end up saving you a small fortune in petrol and time.

Our service puts you directly in touch with the top coach operators in the country and offers a completely unbiased comparison of their services and prices. Simply input the details of your upcoming journey into our secure system, and within minutes, we'll reply with up to four quotes from operators in the corresponding area. It couldn't be simpler or more convenient and, as we have working relationships with all our operators, we'll always get you the best rates.

The coaches used by the operators we recommend are also built for comfortable travel, with onboard wi-fi, charging ports for your mobile devices, reclining seats and even bathroom facilities (for longer journeys) all available. We’ll share images of the vehicles as well as information about the coaches so you can choose a travel option that suits your party.

Minibus Hire Reading

If you're travelling in a slightly smaller group, but still wish to retain the convenience of having everyone in the same vehicle, a minibus might be a more cost-effective and flexible option. Most of the coach operators also operate minibuses, which are perfect for parties of 30 or less, and situations where you might require a little more manoeuvrability on the roads. This means a minibus is a particularly sound option if you're planning on doing a lot of inner city travel.

Our quick and secure minibus hire comparison system works in exactly the same manner as our coach hire system. Our network of fully vetted operators is vast and eclectic, and the quotes they offer are always fair and tailored to your specific request. Once we've made the connection, it's up to you to do the rest but the quotes remain reliable and available. Our system is no hassle, no obligation, no stress!
