Latest Caversham parking reviews
Good location less than ten minutes form Reading station.Beth
No problems, all went smoothly and site seemed secure.Michael
This car parking space was convenient for Reading train station great value, easy to find and large enough for my 4x4. It was not necessary to have any contact with the owners when arriving or leaving which suited me as I was busy. The only reason I am holding back on giving a maximum 5 star rating is because there was no advance warning that the bins would be outside and would need to be moved to access the space. If my expectations had been set in advance and this small matter had been in the description and not a surprise I would have been happy to give a 5 star rating.Tim D.
Great location, lots of room and very easy to findRobert
Directions are clear, it’s safe and off a main road so easy to get out of as well, highly recommend if using for gigs/reading festival.Callum
Very friendly owners, would highly recommend.Paige
Very happy with the location.The parking space was safe and easy to find and good communication with the owner Thank you.John
Rented this space for Reading festival. Great communication from the owner, she made sure to leave us contact details and kept in touch with any extra info leading up to the day. I will admit being Reading weekend we were worried that people might park in any space they could find, but our space was coned off ensuring we had no problems parking. Wouldn't hesitate to rent this parking space again.Katie
