The Abbey Ruins

The Reading Abbey Quarter was created to bring together the unique, cultural heritage that exists within the former grounds of Reading Abbey, once one of Europe's largest royal monasteries.

Lying at the heart of Reading, the Abbey Quarter has witnessed almost 900 years of history. Notably the Quarter includes Reading Museum, the Town Hall, Reading Gaol, St. James' Church, St Laurence's Church, the Forbury Gardens, and the remains of Reading Abbey.
