Vibrant town centre, tranquil suroundings

Staines-upon-Thames offers the best of all worlds. The town centre is a lively mix of shops, restaurants, cafés and a cinema, with quieter pockets of green and attractive parks nearby to relax in. All just a short stroll from London Square Staines upon Thames.

There are hidden gems such as historic Staines Village, a Conservation Area where some of the buildings date from the 17th century. The river is another priceless asset, providing open vistas, waterside footpaths and pubs. Neighbouring towns include Royal Windsor, about seven miles away, and Egham, just over two miles*.

The surrounding countryside is a unique blend of Surrey and Berkshire heath, hills and parkland, and, to the north of the town, the watery landscape fed by the Thames. It means that, within just a few miles of home, you will have a multitude of outdoor pastimes to enjoy, from fishing and sailing, to golf and nature walks.

Riverside setting, relaxed lifestyle

The riverside setting of Staines-upon-Thames is one of its most appealing features, with ample opportunities for leisure and to enjoy the wealth of wildlife drawn to its banks.

Centrally located on this stretch of the river, Staines Boat Club is a popular local institution, offering rowing opportunities for adults and children, experts and novices alike. Waterside footpaths take you on a nine-mile scenic trail all the way to Windsor, passing through Runnymede Meadows and the pretty village of Datchet.

For a more relaxed approach to the river, sit back with something to eat or drink at The Swan Hotel in its large garden overlooking the water. Or watch the centuries old tradition of swan upping, when the health of adult swans and cygnets is checked, as it processes through Staines-upon-Thames every summer.
