The Baker Street area is close to the town centre and has many bus routes running through it.
All bus information can be found at the Reading Bus website, with a list of routes, timetables and fares.


Reading has two stations: the main station Reading, about 10-15 minutes walk from the Baker Street area, and Reading West, about 5-10 minutes walk away.

Trains from the main station go all over the UK: to London, Devon and Cornwall, Wales, the South Coast and north to Birmingham, Manchester and even Scotland.
