Bray Things to Do

  • St Michael's Church

    Before we had lunch at The Fat Duck, we took a wander around Bray and visited St Michael's Church. This pretty looking church has roots back to 1294. It was moved to its current location after villagers complained that the (previous) church was too far outside the main village. They tore the old church down and then all contributed to the...

  • ST.Michael's Church,Bray.

    Not the only Church in Bray but the one from the satirical song.If you enter from the High street walk to the right of the Hind's Head hotel and through the interesting gates under the cottage.Check the web site for all Church activities and service times.

Bray Restaurants

  • The another Bray eating place

    The previous reviewer did not know if the Crown served food. Well it certainly does and it is really good. It is also good value for money. My favorite dish is their Moules Mariniere. Every time we visit the UK we manage to visit the Crown.

  • Hinds Head - Heston's gastropub

    We went to the Hinds Head for Sunday lunch, taking some family from Australia who wanted a 'Heston Experience' without the Fat Duck price tag. Ok, we weren't expecting molecular gastronomy - the Hinds Head is just a pub after all, but we were expecting an enjoyable drive in the countryside and, based on all of the rave reviews, a pretty decent...

  • The Fat Duck - best restaurant in the UK

    A visit from my lovely sister Alison was all the incentive we needed to arrange lunch at The Fat Duck, currently rated as the 2nd best restaurant in the world! It is located in a small village called Bray, about 40 minutes by train from Central London - a bit of a hike, but worth it to experience the "molecular gastronomy" created by this...

  • Nice pub.

    Haven't been in here for a while but it doesn't look much changed.Nice to sit outside and enjoy the view.Unsure if food is available.

  • Ba amazed!

    Run by Heston Blumenthal,this restaurant looks pretty bland from the outside,unlike his renowned cooking inside.Check the web site for availability etc.

  • Bump in the night.

    Basically a really friendly local pub,which does some excellent food.Now run by the same people who own the Fat Duck.Didn't eat here but the menu looking promising.Built in 1690 and first known as Olive cottage.The next 2 cottages were added and knocked through to what you see today,giving it a quirky feel.Said to be haunted by the ghost of Emily...

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bray is located in the county of Berkshire, about 30 miles west of London. If you drive there, the trip from central London would take you around 1 hour, via the M4 motorway.

    When we visited Bray we decided to take the train as we knew we would be drinking at lunch time and not able to drive home.

    To get to Bray you must first catch a First Great Western train from London Paddington to Maidenhead. The trip takes around 35 minutes, with departures up to 4 times an hour.

    Once you arrive in Maidenhead, the easiest way to get to Bray is by taxi. There is a taxi rank in the station car park. The trip to Bray takes 5-10 minutes and should cost you around 7 pounds.
