Maidenhead Heritage Trust

Maidenhead Heritage Centre, described by one visitor as “a little gem”, is just the place to explore this town’s history, which stretches from before the Romans to racing cars, aeroplanes, Hammer Horror films and scandals at Cliveden. The town grew up when the first bridge was built across the Thames in 1250 and became a Victorian boom town when the Great Western Railway opened.
Our permanent “Story of Maidenhead” exhibition is supplemented with four free exhibitions a year in our Sammes Gallery, so there is always something new to see.
On the first floor of the museum is Grandma Flew Spitfires, our Exhibition and Archive dedicated to Air Transport Auxiliary, with its fabulous Spitfire simulator (admission charge applies).
