The Thames Promenade in Reading is an area of land which stretches from the Caversham Bridge to Little John’s Farm. It is a well-used site, loved equally by dog walkers, picnickers and cyclists alike.
Along the Thames you can enjoy rich and contrasting landscapes as the river flows through quiet country homes (some of them are so bewitching) and grassy fields and meadows.
The Thames Promenade provides a selection of short walks suitable for all ages and abilities. You can spot many wild fowl like ducks, swans, geese and wild pigeons along the Promenade stretch.
The river is used by a variety of boats rangning from small private boats to larger tourist vessels. Some homes upstream have their own private mini yatches. One home even had its own private chopper with a helipad.
A lot of adventure enthusiasts can be seen canoeing or rowing in the Thames.
A pleasant stroll towards the other side of the Caversham bridge will lead you to the Caversham Lock.
