Maidenhead is a town in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead just outside London and next to the River Thames, as it runs north and then west towards Henley. Lying close to the M4 and A404(M) motorways, Maidenhead is very well-connected to central London, the City and the West End business districts. Nearby towns include Slough, Windsor, Reading and High Wycombe. Part of the county of Berkshire, the town is roughly 25 miles from Charing Cross in central London and is set to become a terminus point for the under-construction Crossrail train system intended to link the capital with many surrounding suburbs. Among the more notable features of the town itself are its bridges which carry rail and road links across the Thames. One such bridge, the Maidenhead Bridge, is a Grade I listed building officially opened in 1777, while another, the Maidenhead Railway Bridge, was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and famously painted by JMW Turner.
