The town has got a population of approximately 78,000 inhabitants & lies beside the River Thames. It is a big 'dormitory' suburb of London, though is still a decent place for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge and a wonderful railway bridge constructed in 1838 by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge was the inspiration for Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is also well known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating meeting place and beauty spot.

The famed bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (for around £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf alongside it & it is from this that the town is considered to have got its name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe').
