The town has a resident population of roughly 78,000 inhabitants & lies beside the River Thames. It is a large 'dormitory' suburb for London, however is still a useful destination for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames at this point is spanned by an eighteenth century road bridge together with a superb railway bridge built in the mid-nineteenth century by the brilliant engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for J M W Turner's work 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore noted for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating rendezvous & beauty spot.

The famed bridge across the Thames was erected in around 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf adjacent to it & this is where the town is believed to have been named (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the erection of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew to be an essential stop off place for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.
