Biscuit Town 200: Biscuit Crumb Trail

A Self-Led Walk To Explore Reading's Biscuit Heritage


Explore Huntley & Palmers heritage on a self-led walk between The MERL & Reading Museum!

Pick up a free leaflet at The MERL or Reading Museum (or download one from this page) and discover significant places from Huntley & Palmers’ history in the area between The MERL and Reading Museum. See the location of Joseph Huntley’s first baker’s shop and the only surviving factory building.

Follow the whole route (approx 3km) starting and finishing at one of the museums, where you’ll be able to explore the Huntley & Palmers collections on display, or choose a route via London Street or Watlington Street if walking between the two.
