The property occupies a prominent position on the west side of Wilson Road, close to its junction with Oxford Road to the north, in a mixed use location towards the centre of the major Berkshire town of Reading.

The property lies approximately 0.5 miles to the west of Reading West Railway Station and 1.5 miles to the west of Reading Railway Station which provides direct services to London Waterloo and London Paddington.
