Discover shopping

In one of the UK's top retail destinations...

Reading is the premier shopping destination in the south east outside London with everything you could want all in one place; from quirky boutiques to high end jewellers, we have a range of independent stores sitting alongside the major high street brands, such as Marks and Spencer, Next and Primark. Our two big shopping centres - The Oracle and Broad Street Mall - are located on the vibrant high street and are a natural starting point for any expedition. 

OracleReading.jpgThe Oracle will appeal to anyone looking for high fashion, brands and spectacular gifts (from Hollister to Hotel Chocolat). The Oracle also has an unrivalled choice of eateries - covering the globe from Wagamama to Cote.

Broad Street Mall is home to TK Maxx, and features a strong line up of high street names, including Argos and Wilkinsons.

And getting to Reading is easy - whether you want the convenience of driving (lots of good quality town centre parking or use our park and ride services) or the ease of public transport. The brand new £850 million train station is located in the heart of the town, two minutes walk for all the shops. Most of our shopping areas are pedestrianised, and pavement cafes abound - so you can relax and watch the world go by as you take a break from bargain hunting.
