Reading is just an hour’s drive from London and can offer a slightly unusual, novel venue for all partygoers. Let us reassure you, all the main ingredients for a memorable birthday party or group party are in place.
From tremendous shopping, sports galore, cool bars, sophisticated dining and seriously hot nightlife Reading ticks all the boxes. You'll find a lake which hosts banana boat rides, a race track with beer keg racing and you're even within an hour of THORPE PARK.
Spend two nights in this fantastic city to get the most out of your time.
As we've mentioned above, there are so many fun and unusual things to do in Reading. There'll be laughter on the bath tub races, you'll feel the adrenaline rush on the banana boat rides and you'll instantly gain 10 stone in the sumo suits.
Giggle along on the nude life drawing, grab your whip for the dominatrix day. For a more laid-back time, spend the afternoon shopping, making chocolates or having high tea in a beautiful manor house hotel.
Modern wine bars, cafes, coffee shops and restaurants selling culinary delights, whatever you fancy, you'll have an incredible time on your group birthday in Reading.
Head to the Oracle which is home to many well known restaurants and sit along the River Kennet, giving you fantastic waterside views whilst you tuck into your birthday meal. After you've eaten, enjoy live music or hedge your bets at the casino or go on a pub crawl and explore the best drinking spots in the city.
