The town of Maidenhead has a population of around 78,000 inhabitants & lies on the River Thames. The town of Maidenhead is a sizable 'dormitory' suburb for London, yet is a pleasant centre for discovering the appealing nearby countryside. The Thames here is traversed by an 18th century road bridge together with a fine railway bridge fabricated in the mid-nineteenth century by the fantastic engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the rail bridge is the inspiration for Turner's painting 'Rain, Steam & Speed'. The Thames at Maidenhead is furthermore known for Boulter's Lock, a fashionable boating assembly point & beauty spot. To the west of the town you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, a place that the renowned brewers Shire horses can be seen, as well as a presentation on the heritage of the horses. In the town itself are almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is an exciting collection of paintings, sculpture, glassware and pottery. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, & the mill was later turned into a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

Maidenhead Historic Past: The former settlement of Maiden Hythe evolved around the the River Thames during the days of the Anglo-Saxons. The celebrated bridge across the Thames was built in about 1777 (at a cost of £19,000), the initial wooden bridge, first put up in 1255 had a wharf beside it and it is from this that the town is believed to have derived its current name (taken from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the building of this first bridge, Maidenhead evolved into an excellent stopping off place for travellers on the journey from London to Bath.
