The local area guide to living in Maidenhead

Maidenhead has long had a reputation as a place for pleasure and was notorious during Edwardian times for champagne parties, drinking clubs, and ‘Ascot Sunday’ – a day for showing off one’s finery on the river. Today, the emphasis is still on the finer things in life, and the town has a plethora of art, music, drama and dance festivals. It continues to attract many affluent residents, hence its reputation as having some of the highest property prices in the UK and a high number of celebrities who make their home in Maidenhead.
