We did some pre-Xmas shopping at the Oracle on a Saturday. Parking was a breeze, the Oracle itself was clean and had so many different outlets it was a pleasure to visit. Would return for sure. Spent 4 hours here !!

The Oracle shopping centre is just 10 minutes walk from the Reading station. As such, Reading has a huge shopping centre within its vicinity. The beautiful part are the eating places along the river Thames.... Relaxing, eating, drinking, sun bathing, pubs, shopping everything under one...More
