Central Working Reading is just a stone’s throw from Reading station, as well as bustling bus and taxi hubs. While the brand new building features a manned reception and breakout spaces that are flooded with natural light, it also has quiet corners for private calls and contemplation. The space is ready and waiting to fill with entrepreneurs and startups alike, with its collaborative and relaxed atmosphere.

I Have been at Central Workings now for 1 month and I can say it was one of the best decisions that I have made for my business. With their fantastic network and amazing facilities my only regret is that I did not move in sooner.

Had our very first event in Central Working, Reading. Such an amazing venue for meetings, presentations and other professional events! Whether it is a meeting that lasts a couple of hours or an all-day event, the venue is perfect.

Central Working Reading is a fantastic work space, and easily my favourite. The space is open, well laid out and feels like a proper office environment. While it isn't yet full, what is noticeable is the low noise levels compared to some of the other locations. Facilities are superb, everything is nice and new and hopefully it will be well looked after by management and tenants alike it.

The space is STUNNING, the people so welcoming and friendly plus the location couldn’t be better for commuters. I was extremely impressed that this existed and was affordable for my startup. Thank you for existing Central Working!

Great space & fantastic team. Felt extremely welcomed by Kim and JJ from the start and then by the whole of the Central Working community. Kim organises fantastic networking events, it is truly a great space for any small/medium sized business as it has a great social environment! Thank you CW Reading Team for all you do.
