Reading is a town in Berkshire, southeast England, located at the confluence of the river Thames and the river Kennet. Dating back to the 8th century, Reading is a major commercial and technological centre, also famous for its summer music festival.

How to get to Reading

Reading is the second busiest interchange station outside London, and it is easily accessible from all main UK cities by train, including direct train services to London (25 minutes) all day and night. Direct connections by train or bus also to Heathrow airport, Gatwick airport, Birmingham International airport, and several other international airports in southern England.

Reading is also easily accessible by car as it lies next to the M4 and other important roads.

The venue

The University of Reading Palmer building is on Whiteknight Campus, the main university campus. It is located two miles from Reading town centre, with direct, frequent connections by bus. Line 21 Claret stops at the campus and is thus the most direct route, although other bus lines stop nearby and are a good alternative.
