Along with vibrant music scene stands its tight links to world literature. Reading is a crucial point for creative works by the famous author Oscar Wilde who was sentenced to two years imprisonment in the city's jail. His works chart his tragic life from his earlier children stories, to the suffering captured in his later works. Consequently, Wilde even swapped his famous name for a new pseudonym according to the cell number C33 where he spent two years captive.
But Reading is not only about culture, but politics too. It served as a haunt for parliament during plague or rebellion in London. And in its early years the city concentrated forces on trade in cloth and with time it evolved into a fashionable center in England. The economy greatly suffered from the English Civil War and was never back to former business again and instead technology processing and insurance took their place.
Even though business in the area makes Reading a far cry from tourist-focused, but it worth a visit for its cultural splendor. If you want to indulge in culture than you should take time for sightseeing.
