Reading (pronounced Red-ding) is the vibrant yet historic county town of Royal Berkshire in the south of England. Despite its close proximity to London it is set in the heart of beautiful countryside, and is near to the attractive counties of Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Hampshire. The two major rivers flowing through Reading, the Thames and the Kennet, are the key to much of Reading's appeal for people from all over the world.

The location of Reading is shown on the map on the left.

With expertise in cartography and photography, MAP READING has developed a series of illustrated maps based on Reading area, each with useful information about the area covered, and its history.
For visitors to Reading in particular, we have a large range of postcards featuring photographs taken from our large gallery on this site.
Maps and postcards are available at retail outlets around Reading and also at our stalls, at which we also sell greetings cards and lettercards, each featuring a local scene. In addition we have on sale a special Farmers' Market Recipe Book, featuring recipes donated by stallholders at the Reading Farmers' Market. The second edition of the Emmer Green history book (produced by Emmer Green Residents' Association) has now sold out.
