Southcote Community Hub

Southcote Community Hub is one of the new community hubs developed by Reading Borough Council, with a view to providing a shared location for a range of services. The centre was recently refurbished and extended to include a library, children's centre and upgraded facilities.

It is a single storey, fully accessible building that offers a bright, spacious hall, a multipurpose meeting room and a 1:1 room; all of which are available for hire to individuals and organisations. 

How to find us

Southcote Community Hub is located on Coronation Square and is easily accessible from the centre of Reading (approximately 20 minutes by bus). The nearest bus route is number 26 which provides a regular service throughout the day until 11pm. The bus stop you need to use is called Coronation Square.

Please note: if you are travelling by car, there is very limited parking available at the centre due to its location, therefore we advise travelling by bus or getting a taxi.
