Maidenhead has a populace of about seventy eight thousand occupants & lies beside the River Thames. It is a big 'dormitory' suburb of London, but it is a great destination for checking out the nearby countryside. The River Thames here is traversed by an eighteenth century road bridge & a superb railway bridge built in the mid-1800's by the fantastic engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge was the subject of Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is additionally renowned for Boulter's Lock, a favorite boating rendezvous and beauty spot.
