Taplow station opened in 1872, replacing the old Maidenhead and Taplow station, which had stood nearby since the 1830s. Its buildings have changed little since then, other than footbridge repairs and a new coat of paint in 2006. It stands in a semi-rural area between Maidenhead and Slough, and is served by trains on the London Paddington-to-Reading line. The journey to the capital takes just under 40 minutes, but passenger traffic through the station is fairly small, with the vast majority of local commuters joining the line at either Maidenhead or Slough. Nevertheless, the station buildings are fairly grand, reflecting the ambitions Great Western Railway had for the original line. Sleepy Taplow itself is about a mile to the north and has two large stately homes: Cliveden and Taplow Court. If those aren't your scene, you'll the Bishop Centre, a large retail park with big-name stores and a few restaurants, round the corner from the station.
