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.



To protect our grounds, and to ensure road traffic safety for our neighbours, please do not travel outside your local area to visit Dorney Lake.

If the car park is full, please come back another time or find an alternative place to exercise.



Access to site for members of the public is now only possible via our Main Entrance Gates, all other pedestrian access gates are to remain closed. Our public toilets are also to remain closed.


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

We have recently moved to a new car parking provider, where payment for parking in our Arboretum (Public) Car Park can be made

by contactless payment at the terminal or via the JustPark app.

Our parking fee still remains at £2.50 flat rate for the whole day.
