It is from here that he wrote “The Ballad of Reading Gaol”. Reading is home to some of the finest museums you can come across in London. Head to the Museum of English Rural Life, Museum of Reading and the Ure Museum at the Reading University. These trips are likely to be immensely informative.

If you have young children with you, make sure you keep safe distance! A stroll by the river also provides excellent photo opportunities. So, make sure you carry your camera.
  • The Pendon Museum: If you are fond of the English countryside and the views it offers, head to the Pendon Museum. You will find miniature captures of the ethereal beauty of the countryside. Realistically modeled farms, fields, cottages and lanes can be found here. Most of the work here is done by volunteers and the sheer finesse would mesmerize you. The Pendon museum makes for an ideal day trip for you and your family.
