Getting here

By car - from the M4

Leave the M4 at J10 and follow the A329 (M) and A3290 towards Reading. When you reach the A4, follow that for Central Reading. At the crossroads with the A329 carry on down the A4 towards Reading.

Move to the right hand lane and take a right turn towards the Town Centre & Caversham. Go to the end of this road and turn right at the lights on to the Ring Road so you are travelling in an anti-clockwise direction.

Follow this road round to the left and go straight over a set of traffic lights. At the next roundabout take the first exit left. At the roundabout after that go straight over (you'll pass Apex Plaza on the right) and at the next junction, turn right and follow the road round to the back of the building to gain access to the car park.


The Reading office has only five allocated visitor parking spaces just behind Apex Plaza. They are available on a 'first come, first served' basis, so it is essential to book these spaces in advance if you wish to use them.

Otherwise, there is an NCP car park just off Vastern Road. From Apex Plaza, turn left into Forbury Road, take a left at the roundabout into Vastern Road, head under the railway bridge and take the first exit at the next roundabout into the car park. There are lifts and stairs from the car park to Reading Station. From there it's an easy stroll across a covered walkway into Apex Plaza.

By train

Our Reading office is extremely convenient for visitors travelling by rail as Apex Plaza is located directly adjacent to Reading Station. Our reception on the second floor is literally two minutes from the station concourse via a covered walkway.
