Cookham is a village and civil parish in the north-easternmost corner of Berkshire in England, on the River Thames. It lies 2 miles north of Maidenhead close to the border with Buckinghamshire.
The village is a popular tourist destination, as it is a convenient base for a number of walks along the Thames Path and across National Trust property. There are a good selection of restaurants and pubs in the High Street. The Stanley Spencer Gallery, based in the former Methodist chapel, also has a permanent exhibition of the artist's works.
