Gatehampton Railway Bridge is a railway bridge carrying the Great Western Main Line over the River Thames in Lower Basildon, Berkshire, England. It takes the line between the stations at Goring and Streatley and Pangbourne, and crosses the Thames on the reach between Whitchurch Lock and Goring Lock.

The brick bridge was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1838, at the same time as Maidenhead Railway Bridge and Moulsford Railway Bridge.
