Located at the confluence of the River Thames and River Kennet in Berkshire, Reading is perhaps best known for its “three B’s”—brewing, baking, and bulbs (seed production). The arrival of the Great Western Railway during the nineteenth century greatly enhanced the town’s industrial growth. It also played a pivotal role in the Revolution of 1688 (the “Glorious Revolution”), serving as the site of the only significant military action of that conflict.
