Curious About Reading

About

Have fun discovering Reading with two quirky heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt.
Are you curious about Reading? Looking for an unusual and quirky activity which gets you out in the fresh air whatever the weather? Take one of our self-guided walks with a treasure hunt theme – looping around the better-known sights, as well as some of the more unusual and quirky ones, which combined make Reading a surprising place to explore! Resident or just visiting, you'll see things you've never noticed before.
As well as the two walks, you'll get detailed directions, maps, clues (with answers in the back!), and interesting snippets about the history of Reading and the people that have shaped it.
Buy in booklet or instant download format from https://www.curiousabout.co.uk/reading.html and explore in your own time. One booklet is enough for four people of all ages to enjoy.
