Shopping

Reading is an incredible place to shop, with a massive variety of retailers from large high-street chains as well as the town's beloved independents. Take a trip onto Broad Street and you'll find independent local traders set up, in front of a historic former chapel-turned bookstore. On this page you'll find everything from new openings and details about our town's incredible food-markets, to the LivingReading theme of the month.
