A good Walk for your private group.
Visiting Eton Dorney? Why not discover more of this beautiful area by the River Thames.
Maidenhead, with its two famous bridges, lies on the London to Bath road and was an important coaching stop with its many inns and taverns. Boating on the Thames was the height of fashion during the Edwardian era and the town acquired a reputation as a resort for debutantes and playboys. During this walk through the conservation area of the Thames Path at Maidenhead Riverside you will discover why Dorney Lake was chosen as the venue for the London 2012 Olympic Rowing and Canoeing events. You will also hear about the 1908 and 1948 Olympic Rowing events and about famous local residents including Lord Desborough who lived at nearby Taplow Court and who organised the 1908 Olympic Games.
The Meeting Point: outside the Thames Riviera Hotel in Bridge Road next to Maidenhead Bridge, SL6 8DW.
