Hole 6: Forbury Gardens

One of Reading’s best known and well-loved parks.

Forbury Gardens is a delightful Victorian town garden. The gardens are located between the town centre and the ruins of the 11th century abbey, not far from Reading Station. The ornamental gardens have a wall around which provides a peaceful and tranquil retreat. There is a bandstand, and bands play every weekend in the summer. The Forbury Gardens is home to the famous Maiwand Lion statue.
