Reach us by road...

QPark.jpgReading is served by 3 junctions of the M4 motorway, which links us with the M25. Both the M40 and M3 are within easy reach. 

While it's very easy to drive around most parts of town visitors are advised to work out driving routes in the centre very carefully and to pay particular attention to access times. At the moment routes through the town centre are NOT available between 7am-11am, and 4pm-7pm.     

Parking in Reading is easy as the town has plenty of good quality multi storey car-parks (mostly pay on exit). However, as with any major city, congestion can be a problem at peak times, and you are advised to plan your journeys carefully if you are driving across town at peak times (or better still avoid travelling at peak if at all possible). Car parks are clearly marked on all routes into the centre and real time traffic information signs will advise you if car parks are full.
