FRIENDS OF CAVERSHAM COURT GARDENS


Welcome to Caversham Court Gardens on the bank of the River Thames in Reading

Enjoy a flavour of the gardens from the video above.

Come and enjoy the beauty and long history of Caversham Court on the bank of the River Thames.  

Owned and cared for by Reading Borough Council. The Friends assist the council  to achieve its objectives for Caversham Court as a historic garden and to raise awareness of its history and importance. 

The gardens are open every day except Christmas Day from 8 a.m. to dusk. Entry is free.   

The Tea Kiosk run by local charities is back from Wednesday 13 March. Volunteers from four local charities will serve hot and cold drinks and home-made cakes from Wednesday to Sunday each week.  The kiosk is open from 11.00 a.m. to 5 p.m. (weather permitting).  Do support this worthwhile project in its quiet riverside setting.

This summer several events will occur in the gardens. Details of these are on the NEWS section of our website.

The first event in the calender is the READING AMATEUR REGATTA which is on next weekend  15 & 16 JUNE.  Crews will be attending from the U.K., Ireland, Germany, U.S.A. and Australia. The finish of races has always been at Caversham Court Gardens. Why not come down to the gardens to cheer on the crews?  Racing is from 9.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. each day.

The Angel Bar will be in the gardens serving Pimms, Prosecco and soft drinks from 12.00 to 6.00 p.m. and the Tea Kiosk  will be open too, from 11.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.
