I really like History of art, reading and classics. I find this fascinating and wondered what degrees may cover such interests ?

Joint honours degrees might be the way forward if you want to study more than one subject. For example, Exeter's BA Art History & Visual Culture and Classical Studies or Newcastle's Combined Honours degree.

Honestly most history of art courses will include classical art (as well as the many receptions and reiterations of it over the years), and involve a lot of reading, so that may perfectly suit you!

If you wanted to do more work on the classical languages in a course that is visually oriented perhaps, then a course in classical archaeology and ancient history/classical civilisation may appeal, as usually you may (sometimes have to) do some language work, and "classical archaeology" as a discipline includes ancient art history.

Alternately some classics degrees have such a wide range of options to allow you to do work in classical archaeology/art, along with the language (and usually literature) work involved in a classics degree (Oxford and UCL, notably). They may also allow you to study some aspects of ancient critical theory e.g. Aristotle and Plato on art and aesthetics. These degrees will have less work in modern art, and reception type work tends to be focused more on literature, however. It would be a perfectly suitable background to go on to do a masters in history of art though.
