Reading Hen Party Guide
This medieval town located an hour and a half to the west of London is perfect for getting out of the big smoke for your big night out! Reading has something for everyone – the Reading Abbey is a main attraction for history buffs; the lively town center has everything you need for a spot of shopping and the active nightlife is perfect for a girly night on the town.
Reading Hen Party Guide – Shopping
With two major indoor shopping centres – the Oracle Centre and Broad Street Mall – on top of the hundreds of stores outside, Reading has more than enough to keep even the keenest shopper entertained. Book lovers should pay a special visit to Reading’s local Waterstones which is housed in an old converted Church.
Reading Hen Party Guide – Eating Out
After a day of exploring the town, you can eat at one of the great city center restaurants – Myalacarte is well known by the locals for having high quality, good value food along with great service; or for some great vegetarian and Mexican options, try out The Mission Mexican Grill which has been described as the best bite in Reading!
Reading Hen Party Guide – Nightlife
For those who enjoy a few quiet drinks, Reading is perfect! Beer is one of the historical roots of Reading, and in late April, there’s an annual beer and cider festival in the King’s Meadow park. If you prefer a cocktail, check out mix bar on Kings Walk which offers great drinks in a sophisticated environment.
