Cookham is a small Thames-side village in Berkshire, lying on the Great Western Railway's Marlow branch line. Its station offers services to Marlow and Maidenhead, with additional trains heading to and from London Paddington during peak hours. The original two-platform station was built in the 1850s, but only platform is now in use.
Although Cookham is on a small branch line, its connections are good - journeys to Maidenhead take less than 10 minutes, and journeys to Marlow around 15 minutes. There's ready access to London for local commuters too, with Paddington trains taking under an hour.
Cookham village's charming high street is about 15 minutes' walk east of the station, and has a good choice of restaurants and traditional pubs, as well as a small gallery and museum devoted to local artist Stanley Spencer. The area is also a popular destination for walkers and nature lovers alike, providing a convenient base for walks along the Thames path.
