Maidenhead boasts a prime location in scenic, Middle Thames countryside. Once considered a playful escape for London’s affluent elite, its appeal stretches back to the Edwardian era.

Although the days of drinking clubs are long gone, the town manages to preserve that vivacious quality with an impressive calendar of dance and arts festivals. Other nearby treasures include the famed horse race at Royal Ascot and the international rowing event, Henley Royal Regatta.

Nicholsons Shopping Centre is home to an extensive selection of shops, and weekly farmers’ markets showcase locally sourced produce. Other attractions include the ODEON cinema, a tenpin bowling alley and Magnet Leisure Centre.

The exceptional schooling establishments of Maidenhead and nearby Windsor are the icing on the cake. A welcoming destination for families, couples and the older generation, Maidenhead is a great place to call home.

History of Maidenhead

Originally known as South Ellington, this riverside town was once a small hamlet until the construction of a bridge over the River Thames in 1280. As the first structure of its kind on the main London-to-Bristol road, Maidenhead was established as a major transportation hub. Although the original construction no longer exists, the current Maidenhead Bridge dates back to 1777.

Growth and prosperity was to continue following the establishment of a railway in 1838. The Great Western Line put Maidenhead on the map as a popular tourist destination for those seeking fun by the river. Widely known for its splendour and debauchery, the town was home to drinking clubs and champagne parties. It also attracted visitors from far and wide during Ascot Sunday.
