About Maidenhead


Maidenhead lies in the county of Berkshire to the West of London on the banks of the River Thames.

Of the many historic buildings in and around Maidenhead, the stunning Tudor mansion Dorney Court is perhaps the finest. With its ornate windows and stonework alongside a huge collection of fine antique furniture and artwork, all surrounded by beautiful grounds offering rose and herb gardens and its own brand of quality honey from the local bees, this country house is a perfect place for a day out for anyone with an interest in history.

Those interested in the history of the local area will find the Maidenhead Heritage Centre is also worth a look, with its range of fascinating photographs and artefacts, alongside regular lectures on the subject.

With its close proximity to Windsor, Maidenhead is a stone's throw away from attractions such as the fun-filled Legoland theme park and the bustling Windsor Race Course.

One of the most popular visitor attractions in the area though is the iconic Windsor Castle which overlooks Maidenhead, dominating the skyline and providing an impressive backdrop to the town centre. The castle has been occupied for over nine hundred years, longer than any other in the world, and is one of the queen's official residences. All those years of history are evident in the huge collection of incredible historic furniture and fittings, not to mention many works of art by such greats as Van Dyke and Rubens.

Maidenhead has a large range of retail opportunities on offer, from the many high street names in the Nicholson's Shopping Centre to the various independent establishments among the charming town centre streets and alleyways
