Cookham and beyond

Whether you are looking for a brisk walk, a stroll through a quaint English village, or some fun and relaxation by the riverside, the area in and around Cookham offers it all, plus more.

Depending on your plans, you could park and start out, for example, at Winter Hill, Cookham Lock or just outside Cookham town centre.


There's plenty of opportunity to relax in the sun in Bell Rope Meadows or to enjoy a pint or two at the lock or one of the other local pubs. Odney Common, on the way to the lock, is also suitable for picnics or sitting in the sun.

Cookham also has a pretty High Street with several arts and other shops perfect for some leisurely shopping.


If you fancy venturing outside of the immediate Cookham area for a longer walk, we recomment the Winter Hill walk. Even if you don't go all the way to the top, it offers some fabulous views across Cookham and the River Thames.
