The town has a populace of approximately 78,000 & lies beside the River Thames. Maidenhead is a considerable 'dormitory' suburb of London, but yet is still a nice locality for exploring the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge plus a superb railway bridge fabricated in the mid-1800's by the first-class engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the subject of J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is also well known for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of Maidenhead is the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the widely recognized brewers Shire horses can be seen, with a presentation on the history of the horses.

Maidenhead Historical Past: The original settlement of Maidenhythe developed around the the River Thames during the times of the Anglo-Saxons. The famous bridge across the river was constructed in around 1777 (at a cost of nineteen thousand pounds), the initial wooden bridge, first erected in 1255 had a wharf built alongside it and it is from this that the town is understood to have derived its current name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). Soon after the construction of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew into an excellent stopping point for travellers taking the route from London to Bath.
