Hotels in Caversham
Caversham in Berkshire has a real sense of community. It's the home of BBC Radio Berkshire, and is just a ten-minute drive from Reading railway station. The area's group spirit reflects the fact that the town only became part of Berkshire in recent times – before 1911, it was in Oxfordshire.
Things to do in Caversham
Golfers of all levels will appreciate the three golf courses around Caversham. There's Caversham Heath Golf Course, Mapledurham Golf Course and Reading Golf Club.
There are lots of playgrounds and parks around for the kids. Hemdean Bottom – locally nicknamed ‘Bug's Bottom' – is often quieter on the weekends. The tennis courts at the Albert Road recreation area are public and don't need to be booked in advance.
At Caversham Library, which is open every day, you can browse through a selection of magazines and newspapers as well as fiction, non-fiction and large print books. There's space to study or sit and read for a while, and internet access is free.
Taking a river cruise promises to be a great day out – Caversham is close to the River Thames. Scheduled tours generally take place between April and September, to nearby Mapledurham and Reading.
The variety of shops in Caversham ensures you can pick up everything you need – whether you're here on business, on a cycle holiday or out with the family.
If you're staying in a self-catering hotel, you have the choice between big-name supermarkets and an independent local butcher.
The town's traditional feel is emphasised in The Clock Workshop. English, French and Viennese antique clocks are on display, alongside carriage clocks and barometers. For more modern pieces of furniture, try The Oak and Pine Shop.
Restaurants, pubs and cafés
You'll find more places to eat the closer you get to the railway station. Pizza, Indian food and Chinese takeaways are situated at both ends of town.
Island Bar & Restaurant is next to the river, recreating the waterside atmosphere of an island getaway. It's not the only eatery at the bridge – there's a grill, tapas bar and pub close by, too.
If you fancy playing skittles with your pint, head to The Gardeners Arms. It's also got darts and board games for some friendly competitions.
