Read Gardens is situated on the corner of Broadway and Stanhope Grove, Camberwell, and so is centrally located and easily accessible by car and public transport.
It's a Victorian-style garden featuring extensive open space, a perennial garden border and a playground. The garden contains significant specimen trees, including oaks, elms and cedars. A commemorative drinking fountain in the centre of the garden was placed in recognition of Major Frederick Fitzwalter Read, a former Mayor of Camberwell, after whom the park is named. This traditional garden setting is an ideal location for weddings and other special functions.
