Social distancing day 3: The Harris Garden

Footpath Harris Garden

On 23 March the Government published stricter guidance on staying at home and away from others that superseded the advice in place at the time of writing on 20 March.

The Harris Garden at south end of the University of Reading’s Whiteknights campus is currently open to visitors as normal. As face-to-face teaching at the university was suspended from 18 March, the campus is much quieter than usual.

The garden is a peaceful haven and, at this time of year, some of plants are beginning to flower although they have not yet reached their peak.

Update at 24 March

At this time Government advice to reduce the transmission of coronavirus is being constantly updated and you should consult the latest guidance on the Government’s coronavirus webpage.
