Dorney Lake is ideally placed being within easy reach of London, Heathrow Airport, the M4 corridor and the M3, M25 and M40 motorways. It is well served by the rail network with main stations being Slough, Maidenhead and Windsor.  We are also near Taplow and Burnham train stations.

We have a pay & display car park for members of the public situated at the top end of the lake.

 If you are attending an event, please contact the organiser for specific parking instructions.

Dorney Lake is now CLOSED to all access including cars and pedestrians from 18.00 on Friday 27th March 2020 to help restrict the spread of Covid-19.

We have taken on board reports from concerned members of the public of some visitors (albeit in the minority) not following government guidelines and congregating in groups rather than solely using the space for their one hour daily exercise. Following this, it is with great regret that we have decided to temporarily close the entire site to ALL ACCESS either by vehicle or on foot.

Despite our desire and best efforts to keep our outdoor space open, the health and wellbeing of our staff and visitors has to be our top priority.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, all scheduled events at Dorney Lake have been cancelled up until the end of April.

Until further notice we are contactable by email only.

Keep safe and stay well.
