Exploring Reading's heritage while you walk

We've gathered some arts/culture/heritage walks together so you can be inspired to discover new things while out for your daily exercise. The hidden histories. The "oh, so THAT's what that is". Easy routes that take in a dozen landmarks. Trickier routes that give you a great reward at the end. And tips on how to create your own walking tours.
