Greenham Common cafe and museum open


The Greenham Common cafe and museum have officially opened over the weekend.


Located within the old control tower, the new cafe and museum offer visitors to the Common a spot to shelter from the elements, a choice of delicious cakes as well as the chance to learn about the Common's history.


On the ground floor is the cafe and toilets with a special area where dogs can sit and enjoy a bite to eat with their owners.


There is a small selection of savoury dishes alongside delicious cakes. This includes sausage rolls as well as bacon and sausage sandwiches.

On the first and second floor, there is a detailed exhibition profiling the Common's history, with personal accounts of what it was like to work there. Information is also available about the wide range of wildlife that lives there as well.



One of the highlights of the control tower is getting access to the viewing area on the second floor that had been used by air traffic controllers. The room gives 360 degree views of Greenham Common allowing visitors to see for miles across West Berkshire.
