I have been told that it's possible to walk down to the Thames in Bray and get a boat to Maidenhead, is this correct? If so do you have any entails of the company running this service please.

French Brothers run a boat to Windsor departing across the road from Jenners Cafe near Boulters Lock, Maidenhead at 11.00 am.

https://www.frenchbrothers.co.uk/public-trips/maidenhead-to-windsor-service

This link gives you the timetable (they normally do not operate this route on Monday or Sunday)

The return journey departs Windsor in the afternoon for Maidenhead, arrives into Maidenhead around 5.15 pm or so. Maybe contact French Brothers and ask if you can join the boat when it gets into Bray Lock then book your ticket on line etc.,

Or join the boat at Maidenhead in the morning and get off at Bray Lock and walk back to Maidenhead. I have been on this journey to Windsor quite a few times over the years. I have seen passengers get off the boat at Bray Lock on the morning trip and Boveny Lock. Again, book a ticket on line.
