Wildlife park and gardens by the Thames


Beale Wildlife Park is currently closed (as at March 2021).  Please check their website for the reopening date.  Our service on this route runs only on TUESDAYS.  For full details please see our 'Goring - Reading Parks Route (the 142-8)' page.


Our Reading-Pangbourne-Goring service passes the entrance to the Park, but since the coronavirus pandemic we are only operating one journey each way on Tuesdays.


If you're travelling from Reading or Pangbourne, we don't run a service back from the Park, but Thames Travel's 143 service departs from the main entrance on the A329 at around 16.00 on Mondays to Fridays in the school holidays only or 15.45 on Saturdays.  Concessionary Pass holders travel free on these services as well as ours.  The buses also pass Pangbourne railway station if that is more convenient.


Thames Travel also operates a service from the Park's main entrance on the A329 to Goring at approx. 1500 Mondays to Fridays or 15.15 on Saturdays, so you could always catch that.  It's a short walk from the bus stop to Goring station (on non school days the bus terminates at Goring station forecourt).  Please contact them for full details.
