PLEASE DO NOT TURN UP BEFORE BOOKING WITH ME BY PHONE OR E-Mail FIRST. Whether visiting Reading UK, recently moved to the area or lived here all your life, my easy guided walking tours explain about its beginning, Rivers/Canal, Important Abbey history, Forbury gardens, Reading Gaol, Glorious Revolution of 1688, WW2 Air Raid, The 5 B’s inc. what was the world’s biggest biscuit factory, Shopping & Restaurants etc.. Suitable for adults & children (those aged over 5 can have a Free Quiz for 5-10 & over 10 year olds). I can normally conduct walkabouts on most Tuesdays, Thursday and some Saturday or Sunday mornings. Other days & times maybe available, providing that I am free on that day & you give me enough notice. Start time can be between 9am to 2pm. Customised walks can often be arranged. NB Second Walkabout added this covers Reading's proud Theatre, Cinema, Religious & Retail heritage, plus The Thames River & Caversham. A third Walkabout is in development & I hope to launch in 2018.
