On Sunday I joined Terry's Walkabout on a special tour of Prospect Park in Reading. It was part of the Jubilation day out. I have been using Prospect Park since I was a child - picnics and games of rounders as a child and walking and car boots as an adult and I thought I pretty much knew all about it but Terry had masses of anecdotes and stories that made me look at it in a new light. We were a mixed group on the walk,, both adults and children, and it worked well on all levels. The walk is at a pace that suited us all and there was plenty of time for questions. Because of my delight in this walk, I have booked another for later this year that links into the Huntley and Palmer 200 anniversary. and I am sure I will discover things about the town that I never knew, despite living here all my life!

Tour was a pleasant pace with loads of information about the history and architecture of Reading, Terry was extremely knowledgable and could answer any and all questions thrown at him! He has an inclusive and approachable manner with his tour guests which made it really enjoyable. Great way to spend a morning.

Thank you for this detailed review, I pride myself as a person born & bread in Reading on being able to answer most questions given to me. This Walkabout contained a great mix of people from several countries and we blended very well. I very much enjoyed your company and hope to see you again sometime soon.

Getting familiar with a town or city whether you are just visiting or moving there is always better when you have the help of someone who has grown up there. Terry is a fantastic guide who gives you a history of Reading, its people, its culture, and its architecture. He is very knowledgeable, full of interesting facts and stories. I took his "Town Centre" walkabout. He has 16 tours that he has created and I hope to take more the next time I'm in town.
