The town has a resident population of about 78,000 & stands on the banks of the River Thames. Maidenhead is a sizeable 'dormitory' suburb of the city of London, but it is a useful centre for checking out the nearby countryside. The Thames here is spanned by an 18th century road bridge together with a terrific railway bridge built in 1838 by the extraordinary engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the railway bridge is the subject of Joseph Mallord Turner's work 'Rain, Steam and Speed'. The River Thames at Maidenhead is also noted for Boulter's Lock, a favourite boating meeting place and beauty spot. West of Maidenhead you will find the Courage Shire Horse Centre, where the famous brewery's 12 Shire horses can be viewed, together with a display on the history of the horses. In the town itself you can see almshouses dating from as long ago as mid-seventeenth century. The Harry Reitlinger Bequest is a remarkable collection of sculpture, paintings, pottery & glassware. Ray Mill Island is a park, & the mill is now a hotel. The acclaimed National Trust house of Cliveden stands high above in nearby Taplow.

The Historic Past of Maidenhead: The initial settlement of Maiden Hythe grew up around the the Thames in Saxon times. The celebrated bridge across the river was erected in about 1777 (for around nineteen thousand pounds), the original bridge of wood construction, first put up in 1255 had a wharf beside it and this is from where the town is considered to have got its name (from 'New Wharf' or 'Maiden Hythe'). After the constructing of this first bridge, Maidenhead grew to become a critical stopping place for travellers on the route from Bath to London.
