Football or rugby, the Madejski has it all
The home of Reading Football Club and London Irish Rugby Union Club, the Madejski Stadium is at the heart of sport in Reading, Berkshire. Conveniently close to the M4 on the southern edge of Reading, travel to and from the £50m ground is relatively hassle-free even on match days.
Take a tour of Reading
Reading is a large and attractive town, with a surprising amount to offer visitors and tourists. The Hexagon Theatre and South Street Arts Centre are both excellent venues, with the latter attracting big names in music and comedy. The shopping in Reading town centre is excellent, with independent boutiques alongside big-name brands, and the nightlight is worth experiencing - particularly the Purple Turtle.
Visit the Big Smoke
London is within easy reach of the Madejski, a little over an hour by road and slightly less by public transport. This means the capital - and all its sights and sounds - makes for a tempting daytrip.
Planning a trip to the Madejski Stadium? Travelodge Reading Whitley Hotel is ideal, just a mile away, while Travelodge Reading Central Hotel is convenient for town as well. Travelodge Reading M4 Eastbound and Westbound Hotels may be preferable for travellers from further afield.
