Reading is close to Heathrow, to Gatwick, to the centre of London. Its a place that has a lot of things to do, the weather is always very good in comparison to other UK cities and the university is very close to the centre of the town.

You can get catered accommodation where you can get food on campus which includes park eat, another place near union and Starbucks at the gym. From having this during first year I must say that the food is average and can be a bit repetitive. As the university is located near Reading Oracle there are loads of options whee you can eat there and can get good student discounts too.

The shopping at the oracle provides a wide variety of shops and also restaurants for a variety of tastes. The transport links from here uni to the centre are regular, allowing you to easily get from the rural campus to the train station easily.

Reading is a half hour train journey to tfl zone 1. There is a wealth of connecting trains into London and the surrounding areas as well as trains to other parts of the country. Reading's bus service includes a 24/7 bus and buses running very regularly with many routes into town. The Oracle in town is situated by the river and there are a variety of shops and restaurants that you are spoilt for choice. The town nightlife is catered to students and the value for money is high. For cheap cinema nights, Vue offers deals on Mondays that make even going out on a non-alcoholic trip cheap.

A few clubs for nights out but not a lot of variety, food is mainly chain restaurants which is good for discount for students but not for nice dinners out. Lots of pubs which is great hit mainly too expansive for students. Close to London so great transport links. Shopping is good with the oracle shopping centre. Nice park on campus for walk alongside the bars and SU on campus. Housing is fairly expensive as are halls.

It's a pleasant area with an variety of shops and a place to rest your legs and a bite to eat! There are also many places in which you can get a bus from or if you're feeling fruity, ride a bike!

It's very convenient to go to central London from Reading, so that's one of the good things here. We have a large shopping centre which has pretty much everything, and there are quite a few of popular places for a good meal and night out! That said, being close to London means every thing here is rather expensive, and I wouldn't say things here are good value for money!

Nights out at clubs are fairly cheap as they do student nights from £3! Drinks like vodka and mixer are also cheap from like £1.50 and there's plenty of restaurants in the town centre, lime Nando's, TGI Fridays, wagamama, The Real Greek and Pizza hut, there's something for everyone here. Also an amazing shopping centre, The Oracle, with shops like h&m, zara and the 3 main department stores - John Lewis, House of Fraser and Debenhams.

I fell In love with Reading from the very first day I explored the town. It’s red brick high street with its abundance of shops, restaurant and bars is a wonderful spot as it the river side! The university campus is gorgeous and what makes Reading so special- it’s had the green flag award for years and definitely deserves it. The bars on campus are also excellent- have loved my time here :)

Food, shopping and value for money all excellent. Things to do and nights out less good, plenty of places to have a night out but clubs in larger cities are far better.

Clubs are all quite similar- same music. Nice bars. Very accessible although roads and traffic is bad. Shopping for high street brands is good but not many trendy independent shops. Eating out is good with lots of places. There is an average amount of entertainment. Good cinema. Trampoline and climbing centres

Other than clubbing and shopping, there really isn't anything to do in Reading. The Oracle is a good shopping centre, and the Vue cinema is good but expensive. Nightclubs are good but the Student Union on campus is by far the best option.
