Looking forward to being able to access ruins again after the long-awaited restoration!

Really fascinating site. Full of history. Good place to visit

Quite interesting from a local history perspective. Note that they are doing fairly extensive restoration work in late 2017, which means that much of it is currently covered in scaffolding.

Really interesting landmark! Although the pavement towards the area needs serious work.

The abbey have been subdivided and partially built over since the 17th century, but there is a lot of local interest in them and efforts are being made to make them more visitor-friendly and informative. That said, what is left is rather sad and needs imagination to interpret. The church was the size of a large cathedral, but its footprint is not at all well advertised.

It's going to be fabulous once it's completed in June

I’m so happy this place has opened again after 10 years. The new displays are lovely, particularly the one that plays music and spoken word when you wind it up. The ruins have been repaired and cleaned very tastefully- great work.

The Abbey is a wonderful glimpse into the history of Reading. The ruins are beautiful and the information laid around is very informative. Definitely a go to for lunch or just a walk round.

Very interesting and great to see it open again. Could do with a few more information boards to give some more in depth info on the site. That said, for free you can't complain 😊

Now restored and reopened to the public, it has quite a history. Some information boards are displayed. More will probably be forthcoming in the future. There's not a lot to see, but it's free.

If you know Reading, you may well know of it's Abbey. Along with the nearby Forbury gardens, they make up the jewel in Reading's crown. After a lot of work to keep it from further decay, the Abbey is once again open. Learn about Henry the first who had the Abbey built and was later interred there. Find out what happened to the last abbot of Reading and the man he thought was his friend (another chap by the name of Henry, a real nutjob). History awaits at Reading Abbey.
