Travel & Accommodation
However you plan to attend Pride, it's always best to arrive in style! There are numerous ways to travel to Reading Pride given our location we’re just a short distance from Reading town centre.
Penta Hotel, Reading
When we were kids we dreamed of growing up to not be like other hotels. We're proud to be the black sheep of the hotel world, because black sheep come in all the colours of the rainbow.
Reading Pride is a great reason to stay, and there are tons more in the heart of Berkshire’s royal heritage. We're located near Reading University, great shopping and the beautiful Thames Valley countryside.
It isn't easy to get out of the hotel. No, the doors don't get stuck. It's the cool décor, the chilled attitude, the great services and the yumtastic food. Before you even get as far as your fabaroomy room.
