About Reading, UK
Learn About This Location
Reading is a large town in the county of Berkshire, UK, and served as an important center in the medieval era as the site of Reading Abbey, a monastery with strong connections to royalty. The town endured major hardship during the English Civil War, including a major siege and loss of trade. The 19th century brought with it the Great Western Railway and the development of the town's brewing, baking and seed growing industries. Today Reading is a commercial hub, primarily involved in information technology and insurance.
