For those looking for a new home, now is the best time to settle in Reading. New housing developments are always springing up, both in Reading’s modern centre and nearby countryside dwellings like Caversham Heights.
Reading has a reputation as a commuter haven for its close proximity to London (just 30 minutes on the train) and its comparatively cheap house prices. The train station serves as a central hub for the city, around which Reading’s retail and hospitality industries thrive. It has a wealth of shopping areas in lush riverside locales on the Thames, where canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts can spend their weekends.
Ideal for families
Reading is ideal for new families, too: it has several excellent schools, with many rated ‘Outstanding’ in their Ofsted reports. Better still, Reading’s booming tech industry affords professionals an opportunity to climb a lucrative and exciting career ladder.
