    6 Quirky Facts About Reading

    1. Quarantine
      In 1646, long before the nation took to wearing facemasks, Reading town council set aside houses to quarantine locals suffering from the Plague. In 1665 when the disease ravaged London, Reading closed its borders and wardens searched goods and people entering the town which helped stem the worst of the pandemic.
    2. Slow Down!
      Formula racing legend Ayrton Senna spent time living in the town. The road where he lived and a nearby playground are both named in his honour. Perhaps the town planners didn’t notice the irony when they added speed bumps to the street to slow traffic down.
    3. Don Good
      Reading University was opened in 1892 as an annexe of Oxford University. Jamie Cullum, James Cracknell, Lady Eve Balfour, Sir Hugh Robertson and Thomas Schafenaker all attended Reading uni.
    4. Famous Faces
      The town certainly has artistic credentials, Jane Austin went to school here and other famous names from Reading include; Sir Kenneth Branagh, Charlie Brooker, Jacqueline Bisset, Natalie Dormer, Ricky Gervais, David Lean, Mike Oldfield and Kate Winslet.
    5. Duchess of Cambridge
      Perhaps the town’s most famous resident in recent times is our future queen, HRH the Duchess of Cambridge. The Middleton family are still based in the area and both Cate and her sister Pippa went to schools locally.
    6. Henry’s Heart
      King Henry I was buried in reading. Having died in Lyons-la-Forêt, France he was brought back to England, minus his tongue, heart and eyes as his followers were worried they would rot en route, and before being buried in Reading Abbey.
