Wokingham in Berkshire
Located about 30 miles south of West Central London is the tiny market town of Wokingham Berkshire. There are only a few things to do in the city which include a miniature railway attraction, canoeing, 4x4ing, and strangely an indoor Skiplex. If you are looking for more fun on your holiday then you might want to head on over to Reading England instead.
Reading is located approximately 20 minutes by car from Wokingham. There you’ll find a plethora of activities yourself. Located on the Thames River, Reading offers much in the way of outdoor activities. Walking and hiking are two of the most popular, while you can also express your water talents by renting a rowing boat and going to town. For a bit more excitement without the risk, check out The Thames River cruises for dinner and a show. The Forbury Gardens are also a big hit with outdoor enthusiasts, so give a tour there a go during your holiday.
Of course, if you enjoy indoor activities and also the arts, then you may find that the Museum of Reading is just that you are looking for during your holiday. Inside of the Reading Museum you will find plenty of ancient books to quell your insatiable desire to learn about ancient English history.
