Maidenhead has a population of around 78,000 inhabitants and sits on the River Thames.

The Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge in addition to a terrific railway bridge fabricated in the mid-nineteenth century by the tremendous engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the inspiration for Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is additionally well known for Boulter's Lock, a popular boating meeting place & beauty spot.
