Tour of Foxhill House and through the meadows to the Whiteknights lake

University of Reading, Foxhill House, Shinfield Road, Whiteknights, Reading, Berkshire, RG6 6EP

Foxhill House is a fine example of mid-Victorian architecture. Designed by Alfred Waterhouse, it is situated on raised ground near the northern corner of the University campus overlooking the meadows down to the Whiteknights lake.

Alfred Waterhouse, renowned for his architecture especially for Foxhill House which he designed for himself, designed other buildings for the Whiteknights estate as well as in Reading town. After him there were several other well-known owners of Foxhill until the University of Reading acquired the house in 1955 for use as student accommodation. Since 2004 it has been the home of the School of Law.. The guided tour by members of The Friends of the University of Reading will enable you to see the hall and some rooms in the house as well as the former stable block, the stylish external design and the garden. The guided walk through the meadows and to the lake will include description of some of the historical features of this part of the campus.

This event took place in September 2023 and the entry is now archived.
