Marlow is a charming historic town situated on the River Thames and surrounded by beautiful countryside, with the Chiltern Hills to the north. Being a thriving community only about 30 miles west of the centre of London and with good communications by road and rail, it is popular both with visitors and as a business base. Marlow hosts a regular regatta, and is the location of Marlow Lock, originating from the 14th century.

There has been a bridge over the Thames at Marlow since the reign of King Edward III. The current bridge is a suspension bridge, designed by William Tierney Clark in 1832, and was a prototype for the nearly identical but larger Szechenyi Chain Bridge across the River Danube in Budapest.

Marlow is twinned with the French town of Marly-le-Roi and has recently twinned with a district in Budapest adjoining the River Danube with the William Tierney Clark suspension bridge.
