An insider's guide to Maidenhead

Berkshire – one of London’s neighbouring home counties known for its royal connections, bucolic riverside villages and rolling valleys.

Nestled in the east corner you’ll find Maidenhead. A town that, much like the river it sits on, continues to go with the flow of rejuvenation as new transport links create new opportunities for development.

And while being able to get back to buzz of London is great, Maidonians really do prefer the quieter, babbling brooks of the countryside and extra space to breathe. Strolling down the river to some of its surrounding villages and you too will sip on the same inspiration that Kenneth Grahame found for everybody’s much-loved children’s classic, The Wind in the Willows.

So, hop aboard for a whistle-stop tour of Maidenhead!

there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats
