About this holiday

Meet up on Friday evening at our popular hotel with your Tour Leader and fellow walkers for a welcome drink and dinner.

Walk 1 – 9-10 miles (16km) / Burnham Beeches to Maidenhead

Our coach transfer takes us from the hotel to Burnham Beeches National Nature Reserve - one of the best examples of ancient woodland in Britain and famed for its gnarled ancient beech and oak pollards, many of which are more than 400 years old. Enjoying the spring wonders of The Beeches we follow the Shakespear's Way and descend to the picturesque village of Cookham. Here, we break for lunch (own cost) and have time to explore the village, including an opportunity to visit the Stanley Spencer Gallery (small admission charge). In contrast to our morning walk, we now learn of political intrigue and scandal as we follow the Thames Path past Cliveden and Boulters Lock to Maidenhead. The view across the river along Cliveden Deep is dominated by the beautiful hanging beech woods of the Cliveden estate. Straddling the river at Maidenhead is Brunel's famous railway bridge which Turner made the subject of his famous painting: Rain, Steam and Speed (1844).

Walk 2 – 5 miles (8km) / Cookham and Cock Marsh

On this walk we take the Thames Path from the picturesque village of Cookham to explore the riverside meadows and Bronze Age burial mounds of Cock Marsh. We then return to Cookham where our walk finishes but with some time to explore the village.

Note: This walk may be altered if conditions underfoot are too wet or at times of flooding.
