Situated along the M4 corridor, equidistant from London and Swindon, Reading has gained a reputation as an important commercial centre in the south of England, with business parks located at Winnersh Triangle, Green Park and Thames Valley Park. There is a strong technology & software presence with major companies Oracle and Microsoft having large multi-building campuses based in the town. With major transport links directly into London, including being the start of the Crossrail underground line in the West, Reading is a very popular destination for individuals, and companies alike, and even though it has a close proximity (around 40 miles) to London, it has a net inward commuter flow, with approx. 30,000 commuters inward, and 24,000 departing, showing just how popular the town is for business.
The town also hosts offices of many other big companies, such as Cisco, Verizon Business, Prudential and PepsiCo. Because of the large presence of businesses in Reading, it has often been dubbed the commercial capital of the Thames Valley.
Reading town centre is a major retail shopping centre for Berkshire, and is home to the Oracle and Broad Street Mall indoor shopping centres. Along with major retailers including John Lewis, Debenhams and House of Fraser, there are also a vast number of small and independent shops lining up alongside the larger ones. Because of this, and the fact that is easily accessible from many areas of the south, Reading boasts a large catchment area, with shoppers travelling from High Wycombe, Slough and Didcot to shop in the town.
The town is the home of Reading Footbal Club and the Rugby Union Club, London Irish who both play at The Madjeski Stadium which opened in 1999. The Madjeski Stadium was built when Reading was promoted to Division One which meant there was a requirement for an all seating stadium.
