Hotels near the The Oracle Shopping Centre
The Oracle Shopping Centre
The Oracle is Reading's major shopping mall, with a lovely riverside feel. Home to two department stores (Debenhams and House of Fraser) and a host of high street fashion brands including Karen Millen, Morgan, Mango, Topshop and lingerie-specialist La Senza, there is a shop to satisfy every taste.
In addition to all the shops, there are also plenty of dining options. Try the Albert Roux Café (with a menu designed by the gourmet French chef) in House of Fraser, a number of coffee shops, several pubs (Brannigans, Slug and Lettuce) and restaurants including Nando's, Old Orleans and Ken Hom's Yellow River. Round off your shopping trip with a naughty-but-nice Haagen Dazs ice-cream.
For readers who are interested about such things, The Oracle is built on the site of one of the earliest workhouses in the country, constructed in 1628 for the production of cloth.
