Perfectly placed 40 miles West of London, Reading enjoys excellent access to major towns and cities across the UK and internationally, by road, rail or air. Four motorways – all easily reached from Huntley Wharf – link Reading directly with London, the South West, Midlands and Wales. Other important centres for business and commerce, including Oxford, Birmingham and Bristol, can be easily accessed by road and rail.
Heathrow and Gatwick airports are also on direct road and rail routes from Reading centre. Huntley Wharf lies right in the heart of everything Reading has to offer. A short walk brings you to the town centre and its amazing variety of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. Its station lies on the direct line to London, and locations across the country, including the main international airports which are all within easy reach.
LOVE LIFE ON THE RIVER
From your front door you can explore a whole new world of riverside living. The River Kennet flows gently from its source in Wiltshire through Reading town centre and past Huntley Wharf. Wildlife flourishes here – freshwater fish, otters, kingfishers and dragonflies can all be spotted. Follow the riverside walk, perhaps taking in Blake’s Lock and the Reading Museum, and soon you will reach the horseshoe bridge, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1841. This is where the Kennet meets the mighty River Thames. Left or right along the leafy Thames Path leads you to the delightful Berkshire towns of Sonning and Wargrave, Pangbourne and Henley.
