Lovely ambience. You can walk along the river to Raymill Island where you can if you have younger children feed ducks, view the waterfalls and enjoy picnic on the grass

After much local anticipation the new bridge linking Ray Mill Island with the wilds of Taplow has today been installed. This new structure links Berkshire with Buckinghamshire across the River Thames, makes the park area twice as big, and opens up a whole new area...More

Ray mill island is open every day. There is no one on site permanently and it is run by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Info and phone numbers are on their website. Hope this helps!
