Visitors also enjoyed guided tours of artists' studios on the upper floors of the Keep. OHOS is grateful for sponsorship from RIBA (the Royal Institute of British Architects) for production of a historical information panel about the Keep, to the Wardrobe Museum of loan of artefacts, and to Reading Museum for a panel about Reading during the Napoleonic wars.
- A fascinating glimpse into the Napoleonic era and Napoleon himself. Very interesting and informative – thank you.
- So pleased to be able to visit this landmark and learn some of the history of the Berkshire regiment and also to be fascinated by the artistic work being carried out. We do hope that this project flourishes.
- Thank you very much for an impressive Open Day. What a lot of great work has gone into this
