Maidenhead has a populace of approximately 78,000 occupants & lies on the banks of the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a large 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is a great centre for discovering the nearby countryside. The Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge and a fine railway bridge constructed in 1838 by the outstanding engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the setting of J M W Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The river at Maidenhead is in addition renowned for Boulter's Lock, a well-liked boating rendezvous & beauty spot.

Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill later became a hotel. The widley known National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.
