| Events in Cookham | 10 Places to Stay

Cookham is a pretty village in Berkshire on the River Thames, the scenic area is a delight for walkers, with many country walks, or perhaps a stroll to Cookham Lock where the thrill of watching woodpeckers, kingfishers, and kestrels will fill many an artists page. Stanley Spencer the famous artist lived here and an Art Gallery displays some of his work. Time it right and you may be lucky enough to see the colourful ceremony of ‘Swan Upping’ when the Royal Swan keeper rounds up all of the new cygnets for Queen Elizabeth 11. Cookham’s beguiling spell is magically cast forever.
