Where to go

ABC Medical
St. Peters Church Hall
Church Road

There are parking spaces available onsite, in the unlikely event that that the car park is full the nearest public car park is at Sol Joel playing field.  This is about 3mins walk from the hall, and is on the left, immediately after the church as you drive down Church Road towards the crossroads with the Wokingham Road.  This car park is free.  Please note this car park is only open during the daytime and closes at dusk.  There is also some on-street parking available in St Peter’s Road (especially in the evenings) which is again about 3 mins walk from the hall. 

The bus routes nearest to the church hall from Reading town centre are the 17 (every 7 – 8 mins daytime), and the 4 or X4 (every 15 mins).  These both stop at the Three Tuns on the Wokingham Road, about 5 mins walk from the hall.

The hall is an approximate 15 miniute walk from Earley Train Station.

Drinks are available throughout the day, we do advise delegates to bring lunch with them, however if preferred there are a few shops within close proximity to the Hall.
