Mini guide to Burnham


Situated to the west of London near Slough, Burnham is an ancient thoroughfare made famous by the Doomsday Book and is nowadays used by visitors as a base for spending time in the spectacular Burnham Beeches to the north of the town. The Burnham Beeches consist of ancient and well preserved woodland saved by the City of London Corporation in 1880.

Burnham Beeches itself takes its name from the pollarded beech trees that populate the woodlands, many of which date back to the 15th century. The park is relatively small but nevertheless it attracts thousands of annual visitors, who come to enjoy the peacefulness of the area and its abundance of wildlife.

The park is crisscrossed by three scenic walking trails, allowing you to discover the remarkable scenery in your own time. The three trails vary in length and include: the Downy Emerald Trail, which takes about one hour to complete and is the shortest of the three; the two and a half mile long Green Woodpecker Trail; and the Historical Trail, which is the longest and takes about 2 hours, 30 minutes to complete.

There are several other worthwhile attractions near to Burnham such as Cliveden and its beautiful gardens, Dorney Court and Odds Farm Park for its range of animals. The village of Taplow is also worth a look, as is the town of Windsor with its spectacular castle. Farther afield and within easy reach is the popular regatta town of Henley-on-Thames, while picturesque Oxford and Aylesbury are also nearby.

Burnham is accessible via junction 7 of the M4 motorway and two trains per hour run here from London's Paddington Station. Heathrow International Airport is very close, with shuttle buses to Burnham going via Slough.
