Getting to Dorney
By Car      
Dorney is about 2 miles from Junction 7 of the M4.  Turn left at the roundabout, go straight across the traffic lights, go left at the next roundabout (by Sainsbury's), and it's around 1.5 miles down the road.

If you are looking for the rowing lake, go past The Pineapple pub on you right, then take the next right (Court Lane).  Carry on down the lane for around 300 metres, and Dorney Lake is straight ahead.

If you really like speed bumps, you can also get to Dorney by driving from Windsor or Slough.  Go through Eton and turn right at the traffic lights.  Keep on that road and once you've gone over two cattle grids you've reached Dorney village.      
By Train      
Dorney doesn't have its own station.  The nearest is Taplow, around 1.5 miles away.  Burnham station is also close, around 2 miles away.  Both of these stations are small, and have around 2 trains per hour.  The nearest station with fast trains from London or Reading is Slough, which is a 15 minute car journey.      
It is also possible to get a train from Waterloo to Windsor and Eton Riverside station, which is also around 15 minutes away by car.      
If you really want to come on the Marylebone line, Gerrards Cross station is around 20 minutes away.      
By air      
Heathrow is the nearest airport, around half an hour away by car.  You can also get the train or tube into London from Heathrow, then come back out again on the train.      
By water      
I guess if you really wanted to, you could come by boat, as the River Thames runs through Dorney, but there are no organised boat services.  You could even swim if you fancied it...
