If you or a member of your family has mobility problems, why not take advantage of our Shopmobility service. We have scooters, wheelchairs and powerchairs available for use within The Oracle and Reading City Centre.              

Use of the Shopmobility service is not restricted to The Oracle, so you can explore the city centre during your visit. The Oracle is designed to be accessible and user friendly for all our visitors, no matter what their needs may be.

Opening Hours

The Shopmobility service is available seven days a week; Monday to Saturday from 10am – 5.30pm, and on Sunday
from 11am - 5pm*.

*The service is on call on Sundays, so please use the yellow help phone opposite the Shopmobility entrance and
a member of staff will assist you.

How it works
