  • Junction 11 (A34) off the M4 is the best way in from 3 sides of the compass. Molebrace Car Park is the best choice if mobility disabilities are relevant. Catering is better than most shopping centers. Toilets are exemplary. Good range of shops and ambulant access to the rest of Reading town centre is good. Wheelchair users heading out to the Town Centre please speak to Security for access advice, it's possible but not obvious!.
  • It’s a shopping center. Filled with various shops and accompanied by tasty bars and restaurants over looking the river. During the summer it looks beautiful as the flowers bloom and in the winter it looks spectacular with the lights lit up. It offers different attractions year round. It’s situated close to further amenities around the other side. The car park isn't huge and doesn't offer child spaces which can sometimes be a pain! The lifts don’t always work and it’s not always a smooth ride once you’re in one. It’s a nice shopping center but you pay a lot for the car park so bear in mind if you’re considering parking. The train station is an easy 5 minute walk
  • Good size mall with a car park built within. I needed to find a specific suit and so I went through all the men's shops (there were many in and around the oracle) and by the end I had so many options. It's perfectly positioned so you can actually get on to reading high street from the shopping centre. If you need to visit reading for couple hours to the majority of a day then I highly recommend going here
  • Nice place to hang out during weekends, there are good stores inside. Very near to train station, there is a food court inside the mall. Plus point is an indian restaurant right outside. There are other stores nearby this area, and many of them run deep discounts almost throughout the year. Need a whole day to explore the area
  • Modern feeling shopping centre in the centre of Reading. Overall there were many positives to the centre; it has a modern feel, a good selection of shops and friendly and helpful staff. I think it could improve by having more toilets and if they addressed the cost of parking. We paid over £6 for 2 and half hours parking, which is ridiculous for a shopping mall.
