Whittington’s Tea BargeContact Whittington’s Tea Barge – Where to find us

Whittington’s Tea Barge is moored on the north bank of the river Thames, alongside Hills Meadows, Reading, Berkshire RG4 8DH

There’s plenty of parking just a few steps away in the Hills Meadow car park, off George Street.

We’re just across the bridge from the circular block of the Thames Water offices, and close to Reading town centre and the railway station.

For ramblers and keen walkers, if you’re making your way along the Thames Path, we’re just across the George Street bridge, making an ideal spot to break your journey, refresh and rest your legs; we even provide places for dog walkers to tie their mutts up and have a drinkie.
