"Few towns are less prepossessing at first glance than Reading....but few towns better repay exploration."
Sir John Betjeman
Reading is just 36 miles due west of Central London, but it's a whole world away. Fortunately, BCL Legal's local expert legal consultants know the town and surrounding area just as well as they know its diverse legal market.
This thriving Thames Valley commercial centre hosts the headquarters of several British companies and the UK offices of foreign multinationals, as well as being a major retail centre. Whilst located close enough to London to be sometimes regarded as part of the London Commuter Belt Reading is, in fact, a destination for commuters.
Culturally , Reading has so much to offer. Whilst is has notable theatres and museums, it is perhaps best known for its annual music festival, the Reading Festival, which has occurred annually since 1971. For more on living and working in Reading, visit:
