Windsor to Reading Line
Hello and welcome to the Windsor to Reading Community Rail Line!
This line runs from Reading (home of the annual Reading Music Festival) to Windsor which is home to Windsor Castle - the summer residence of the Royal Family. The line covers 18 stations and runs for 16 miles, beginning at the waterside shopping mall called the Oracle and connecting us to beautiful green-spaces, winding rivers and canals, villages and towns and ending at the cobbled stoned roads of Windsor High Street – where you will find an array of independent boutiques and designer shops.
The line promotes and encourages active community participation and partnerships by working together with local groups to deliver a wide range of community engagement events along with promotional activities throughout the year. These events include interventions such as: Try a Train ( supporting young people into independent rail use) along with ‘pop-ups’ such as local walking and cycling groups. We work in collaboration to promote rail usage, sustainable transport, the environment and culture and heritage of the local areas - by improving the appearance and conditions at our stations (displaying the works of local artists). We ensure your eclectic voice is heard by our railways.
So why not come along and be a part or our community rail experience and engage in the cultural heritage and attractions along the way...
