    In Reading, The Forbury Gardens, a nationally acclaimed Victorian formal garden, is the town’s floral heart, leading you beautifully to the ruins of Reading Abbey, ancient monument and burial place of a King of England. Wander through the ruins to the Kennet and Avon Canal, strolling past Reading Gaol and the Oscar Wilde gates. There is so much to intrigue and inspire, you’ll want to walk the canal, past the sites of Reading’s industrial past. Find yourself at Blake’s Lock, in the shadow of luxury apartments. Explore the Riverside Museum and relax on a barge moored outside a restaurant that started life as a Victorian pumping station
