Fest, and best of the rest

Home to one of the largest and longest-running festivals on the UK circuit, Reading Festival started life as The National Jazz and Blues festival in the early 1960s. In this day and age, by performance, we reckon these hallowed stages have seen almost every rock and roll legend in history. Some legacy.

Away from this riotous annual weekender, the local area surrounding Pirate Studios Reading offers plenty around the banks of the Thames Valley and River Kennet. The Jolly Anglers is the local's choice watering hole; follow the Thames Path towards Reading Bridge and work up an appetite for brunch at Whittingtons Tea Barge — one of the cosiest snack spots we have ever had the pleasure of visiting.
