The Blade is within a five minute walk (through Forbury Gardens) of Reading’s main station – which provides outstanding transport links across the country and beyond.

From 2019 the Elizabeth Line will provide reduced travel time into and across Central London.

Heathrow will be within easy reach thanks to the proposed new £500m Western Rail Link to Heathrow scheme – meaning passengers will benefit from direct rail access to the airport from Reading.

Access to the M4 at three junctions provides wider connection to the national motorway network and the M25.


Reading is fit for cyclists with a 37 mile network. The Readybike hire scheme now has 29 docking stations in the town’s urban centre.
