About

Curious About Reading visits not just the obvious places, but some unusual ones too, with hidden treasures to discover. Suitable for all ages, the walks take 1-2 hours each and are wheelchair and buggy friendly. Each 16 page booklet contains two walks, a brief history of Reading, a detailed map with two walking routes marked on, and a series of directions and clues (Hints as to where to find the answer, and the answers can be found towards the end of the booklet). You'll also find ideas for things to see on the way, pictures to identify & some interesting snippets about the people & events that have shaped Reading.
