2020 is the perfect time to explore the beauty and culture right on our doorstep and the best place to start is the beautiful historical city of Reading. We have everything from museums packed with fascinating artefacts to beautifully manicured public gardens, with something to suit all types of traveller. The best part is you can really make yourself at home in PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments in Reading. Here are our tips for the best things to do in Reading this Summer.
The Great Outdoors
While tourist destinations are always fascinating, the best way to ensure a natural social distance on your travels is to try to remain outdoors as much as possible. Luckily, Reading has some excellent outdoor spots. Reading has a wealth of attractions for all ages including an Abbey dating back to around 1121, three medieval churches and a host of Georgian buildings to enjoy. Our parks are ideal for family playtime, romantic picnics or a before or after-work outdoor workout. Forbury Gardens is one of the largest, closest parks to PREMIER SUITES Reading and where Winter on Ice is usually held at Christmas time.
Day trips from Reading
If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city but want to stay close to your home from home, why not take a day trip from Reading. There are some beautiful estates, green space, and beautiful buildings all less than an hour’s drive from Reading and we recommend you take the time to explore the wider area. You can even see Windsor Castle, the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen is less than 40-minutes’ drive from PREMIER SUITES Reading? We’re well connected by road and public transport so you can enjoy some excellent day trips on your trip to Reading.

Explore Reading by Bicycle
A great way to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city, while getting in some exercise and fresh air is to explore Reading by bike. Reading is a bustling city with plenty to see and do but unfortunately, we don’t have a tour bus, so cycling is a great alternative to those hard to walk to sights. Luckily, we are a bike-friendly city and our spacious serviced apartments Reading offer you the space to keep your bike safe and indoors. Plan your trip to coincide with good weather and explore the city’s parks and green spaces on two wheels. Here are our suggestions on places near and far to discover on your bike.
