The Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust's main site is based about 15 minutes' walk from the centre of Reading.
Our car park is in very high demand and it can be difficult to find a space. If you can travel to your appointment or visit the hospital by public transport, or arrange to be dropped off and collected later, it would help avoid congestion or any delay to your appointment. If you do have to drive please allow extra time to find a parking space on site. Alternatively, on street pay and display parking is available in surrounding roads. Thank you for your co-operation.
