About this holiday

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

Walk 1 – 7-10 miles (12km) / Taplow to Windsor

On our first morning we set out from the hotel walking down to the River Thames following the National Trail to Eton & Windsor. The path passes under Brunel's magnificent Maidenhead railway bridge which Turner made the subject of his famous painting: Rain, Steam and Speed (1844). The tree lined path takes us past elegant villas, Monkey Island, Oakley Court (of Hammer Horror film fame) and the sporting venues of Dorney Lake and Winsdor racecourse. It is along this reach that Jerome K Jerome’s ‘Three Men in a Boat’ had their sad lunch of beef with no mustard and an unopenable tin of pineapple which was consigned to a watery grave! We briefly leave the riverside path here to Dorney and lunch (own cost). This afternoon we continue past Boveney Lock and over Eton’s meadows, the royal town of Windsor comes into view dominated by its Castle, a royal residence for over 900 years. We end our walk here perhaps with a little time to explore before returning to the hotel.

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

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].
