Transport & Car Parking

Behind Waitrose. 200 spaces. From Caversham Bridge, turn right onto Church St. Just beyond Waitrose, turn right at the mini roundabout and go under the archway. The entrance to the car park is on your right. Free for 1 1/2 hours for Waitrose customers.

Chester Street. 70 spaces.  Charging hours are Mon – Sat: 10am - 3pm.  During charging hours, this car park is actually free for the first half an hour (however, please note that you must still take a ticket to prove when you arrived!).  From Caversham Bridge, turn right onto Church St, and then take the second left into Hemdean Rd.  Chester Street is the first right and the car park is on your right.

Oxford Street. There are a few 2-hour bays in Oxford Street, but the signs can be confusing, so take care to ensure you are parked legally. From Caversham Bridge, turn right onto Church St. At the mini-roundabout, turn left into Prospect Street. You will see Dancia on your left, and Oxford Street is the first road on your left past the shop. If there are no spaces, turn left and left again to find Chester Street Car Park (see above).

By Train Reading is easily accessible by train. On arrival, the shop is a 15-20 minute walk. Alternatively, take a bus (see below) or cab from outside the main station entrance.

By Bus From Reading mainline station, take the No. 22 or 24 and get off at Caversham Library. Buses run approximately every 20 minutes during the day. With the entrance to Caversham Library on your left, follow the road until it bears left up Prospect Street. We are halfway up on the left hand side.
