Reading Abbey Quarter

Reading Borough Council


Submission Summary: The creation of the Abbey Quarter is Reading’s most ambitious heritage project for a decade – transforming the precinct of Reading’s royal abbey into a unique historical and cultural destination at the heart of Reading’s cultural renaissance. The project has been a catalyst for positive change, putting this international monastic and royal heritage firmly on the map. We are proud of the impact beyond the Abbey’s walls across Reading’s wider community, having galvanised a step-change in the town’s attitude to its distinctive past and provided a sense of place, community cohesion and pride for its diverse and expanding population.
