About the Centre

The Oracle, situated in the heart of Reading town centre, combines chic boutiques with major department stores like Debenhams and House of Fraser and up to 90 other retail units.

With a 10 screen Vue cinema and a wide range of eateries, The Oracle is sure to have something for everyone.

The Riverside restaurants, cafes and bars stretch along both sides of the River Kennet, providing an opulent dining experience, whatever your tastebuds desire. And when the weather’s fine, there’s the opportunity to dine alfresco.

Two bridges span the river, Cooks Bridge, a footbridge linking The Riverside Car Park to House of Fraser, and Delphi Bridge, which provides access to the Vue cinema and Debenhams.
