Caversham Court Gardens
Explore these beautiful award winning gardens on the banks of the River Thames on this short walk in Reading.
There are three lovely trails in park:
Tree Trail - the park contains many fine specimen trees, some of which are over 100 years old. These include Lime, Yew and Magnolia.
The Detective Trail - a historical walk for children.
The Griffin's Trail - a family walk taking you to the pond, vinery, courtyard, font and riverbank.
The gardens have a wide variety of plants and flowers including Wisteria, Lavender, Tulips, Nepeta and Roses.
Caversham gardens are located just north of Reading town centre, over the Caversham Bridge.
The Thames Path runs past the park so there is plenty of scope for continuing your walk along the river. For example if you head west you will soon come to the beautiful Mapledurham House with its 15th century watermill and lovely parkland.
