The RG postcode area, also known as the Reading postcode area[2], is a group of postal districts centered on Reading and Basingstoke in Southern England. As well as Reading and Basingstoke, it covers West Berkshire, including Newbury, Thatcham and Hungerford, Wokingham, Bracknell, much of North Hampshire, including Bramley, Hook and Tadley, a part of southern Oxfordshire, including Henley on Thames, and even a small portion of Buckinghamshire.

RG3 was recoded in January 1995 because of the rise in population in West Reading, and is now RG30 and RG31.[3]

In 2009 the Reading Mail Centre began a phased closure with all incoming mail for RG postcodes now being processed at the Thames Valley Mail Centre in Swindon. The Reading office currently still acts as a delivery office for part of the town but is due to close in 2010 with staff being moved to a new delivery office on an industrial estate nearby.
