Reading Bridge is a road bridge over the River Thames at Reading in Berkshire. The bridge links the centre of Reading on the south bank with the suburb of Lower Caversham in Oxfordshire on the north bank. It crosses the river a short way above Caversham Lock.

The current bridge is the first on the site, and was built in 1923 as part of the political accommodation when Reading absorbed Caversham. Before then the only road crossing between the two places was at the much more historic Caversham Bridge site some half mile upstream.
