The excellent transport connections make living in Reading a popular choice for families who want to be close to work but also enjoy living in a cosmopolitan city atmosphere.


Reading’s proximity to London and the M4, referred to as Silicon Corridor, is making the town increasingly popular with families and employee relocations keen to live close to the major international corporate headquarters situated here. Commuting times into London Paddington of just 29 minutes is also a big draw. Reading is currently seeing a huge surge in interest as more employers move their staff into the area and therefore city centre executive apartments are in high demand.


Reading is a vibrant town with the large Oracle shopping centre in the heart of the town and a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities on offer at the Rivermead Leisure Complex. The Madejski Stadium to the south of the town is the home of Reading FC and London Irish rugby union club. Reading is close to the River Thames for those keen to enjoy the boating options available or riverside walks.


Over the bridge to the north is Caversham, which is very popular with families due to the excellent housing options available. Schooling options are excellent in the town at both primary and secondary level.


Whether you’re a home owner searching for the perfect new home or a manager looking to relocate employees, we are committed to providing the best possible relocation service.


Serving the Reading area, we take a personal and flexible approach with all our clients, using our insider knowledge to ensure you have all the information you need whilst keeping the whole process straightforward and stress free.
