Those of you with a developed interest in local history may begin with a tour of Reading Abbey. This great religious centre was established by Henry I in 1121. He used the finest building materials and endowed the abbey with extensive lands. You can gain an appreciation for the scale of the Norman structure while exploring the cloister walkways and chapter house. If the sun is shining then you might like to continue with a tour of Forbury gardens. You'll be able to view the splendid rose garden and fountain before having a picnic on the manicured lawns.
