Tour of St Mary's Church, Reading

The society’s visits and walks are always very popular and this one takes us to St Mary’s (the Minster). This is a church with a rich history. It may date back as far as the 7th century when tradition has St Birinus forming a small chapel on the site. Enjoy a guided tour of this important building and learn about its history and the notable families of Reading associated with it. Don’t forget to check out the 150-year-old Indian Bean Tree in the churchyard, one of a number of significant trees planted there.

The tour includes refreshments at St Mary’s.


Pre-booking required.
