Maidenhead station is one of the major hubs on the new Crossrail “Elizabeth Line” with the quickest journey times into London Paddington currently as fast as 16 minutes. When the entire line is fully operational it will mean direct and significantly reduced journey times into the City and Canary Wharf as well as even Heathrow. Access to the M4 is quick and via the A404 dual carriageway, there is also the added option of the M40.
As with much of Berkshire, Maidenhead is blessed with a variety of schools across the age groups. Claires Court for instance is an independent co-ed, school from nursery all the way through to secondary, spread across three campuses. In terms of secondary education, there is Newlands Girls School and just outside of the town, Holyport College, a state funded boarding school.
Being located on the Thames there are river walks and Ray Mill Island to visit. The National Trust Cliveden House and estate is a short drive and in the town centre itself there is the likes of an Odeon Luxe cinema, a David Lloyd fitness centre and even go-karting.
The majority of UK brands have a presence in Maidenhead, whether that’s in the Nicholson’s Shopping Centre, along the pedestrianised town centre or at one of the retail parks. Food shopping is catered for with a Waitrose and Sainsburys and there is an array of different restaurants and bars, most dominant in the re-generated town centre but also for instance on the river, such as Roux at Skindles or The Golden Ball at nearby Pinkneys Green. Not to mention three Michelin starred restaurants in neighbouring Bray.
