With its popular market, busy High Street and picturesque riverside, Staines is one of Surrey’s most vibrant towns. It is a highly sought-after location among property buyers thanks to its proximity to London – the city centre is just 15 miles away – and plethora of green spaces.

Despite being so close to the capital, Staines boasts all the amenities of a self-sufficient town. The bustling market is held three times a week (Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) on the High Street, selling everything from fresh food to clothes and jewellery. For larger stores and big-name brands, check out the Elmsleigh and Two Rivers shopping centres. The latter is home to some of the town’s most popular restaurant chains. Or for a dining experience with a view, head to the riverside and visit one of the many smaller eateries.

Away from its shops and restaurants, Staines offers plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation. From the pretty Colne Valley Park to the beauty of the Thames Valley National Trail, the area is a walker’s delight. And with its superb access to London and Heathrow Airport, it’s easy to see why property in Staines is in high demand.

Things to do in Staines 

Whether you want to take a countryside stroll, hit the shops or enjoy something a little more high-octane, Staines and the surrounding area offers plenty of attractions. Some of the most popular places of interest include:

  • Thorpe Park
  • Spelthorne Museum
  • Old Town Hall
  • Staines Bridge
  • Thames Path National Trail
  • Colne Valley Park
  • Spelthorne Leisure Centre

  • Elmsleigh Shopping Centre

What is Staines Like? 

Given that its full name is Staines-upon-Thames, it’s no surprise to learn that Staines is close to London, just 15 miles away. But while Staines gives you easy access to the capital, it’s also a self-sufficient town so well-provisioned that you might find very little need to go into the city. 

When it comes to shopping, residents are truly spoiled by the three-day-a-week market and two shopping centres. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in Staines, you’re probably not looking hard enough! This wealth of shopping experiences also translates into a wealth of dining venues, from hot food stalls to high street restaurants, but don’t worry: there are plenty of independently-owned restaurants too. 

If you’re looking for a more relaxing pastime, green spaces such as Staines Moor and Lammas Recreation Ground give you plenty of opportunities to enjoy the serenity of spotting local wildlife or just enjoying a walk. The proximity of the Thames means that you can wander up and down Thames Path National Trail to your heart’s content. 

With superb local schools, plenty to do, and ready access to Heathrow Airport putting overseas holidays within easy reach, there’s a reason why Staines-upon-Thames is popular amongst house hunters! Some of the highlights of Staines include: 

  • Thorpe Park is right on your doorstep, putting all of the rides and excitement within such easy reach that you’ll probably want to look into an annual pass! 
  • Staines Market is open three days a week, giving you plenty of time to explore stalls that offer everything from boutique fashion to hot food, fresh meat to candles. 
  • Staines-upon-Thames is a walker’s paradise, with Thames Path National Trail, Staines Moor, Lammas Recreation Ground and more. 
  • Two shopping centres (Two Rivers Shopping Centre and Elmsleigh Shopping Centre) means you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to retail therapy. 
  • Live music and a focus on fun and atmosphere makes The London Stone a must for a great night out. 

Transport Links  

Just as Thorpe Park might overshadow activities in Staines-upon-Thames, so too does Heathrow Airport loom large in Staines’ transport links. Having Heathrow Airport on your doorstep means that travellers have ready access to destinations such as Australia, Barbados, the USA, and more. It’s hard to pick a better location for the frequent flyer! 

For commuters or visitors to the capital, services from Staines railway station will take you to London Waterloo in slightly over half an hour. In the other direction, Reading is less than an hour away, and Windsor is less than 20 minutes away. 

Drivers will appreciate being just inside the M25, meaning they have ready access to the rest of London as well as the M3 and the M4. 

More than a dozen local bus services cover Staines, connecting residents with all that Staines-upon-Thames has to offer as well as taking them to nearby Ashford and Egham. 

Schools in the Area

Staines has plenty of truly excellent schools, making it a popular place to raise a family. 

Younger children will receive a fantastic education at schools like St Michael Catholic Primary School and St Cuthbert’s Catholic Primary School, both rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. St Michael was praised for providing “an outstanding standard of education and care” that results in exceptional results. St Cuthbert’s inspectors found that parents feel their children are “extremely happy here and that they make excellent progress”. 

Children aged 11+ will receive an excellent standard of education at schools such as The Magna Carta School, where Ofsted remarked that student “attainment is above average” and that these good results are set to “improve substantially”. Ofsted was also impressed by The Matthew Arnold School, where teachers “have sound subject knowledge and are passionate about sharing their enthusiasm” that has resulted in record results for four years in a row. Ofsted gave both schools a ‘good’ rating. 

For further education, Brooklands College offers both full-time and part-time courses in a variety of subjects from art to construction, engineering to hair & beauty. Royal Holloway, University of London, ranked in the top 251 universities in the UK, is also nearby. 

Attractions in Staines

Attractions in Staines might be overshadowed by the fact you’ll have Thorpe Park right on your doorstep, but there’s much more to Staines than a theme park! 

The Spelthorne Museum is a history buff’s dream come true, filled with local treasures such as mammoth tusks, Neolithic, Roman, and Georgian artefacts, and a host of other discoveries to tell the story of the area from prehistoric times all the way to the present. There are talks, special exhibitions, and family days too! 

Ale lovers will have to take a trip to Thames Side Brewery, where regular tours give you a look behind the scenes of the brewing process as well as a tasting. There’s even an option to get involved in brewing whichever ale is being brewed that day! 

Take a wander through Staines Market to uncover a new discovery every time. From fresh produce to boutique fashion, hot food to candles, canvas to fresh meat, there’s enough here to spend the entire day exploring the stalls. The market is open three days a week, (Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday) and you’ll find something different every time. 

On days when a market doesn’t scratch the itch for retail therapy, you’re spoilt for choice with both Two Rivers Shopping Centre and Elmsleigh Shopping Centre offering a swathe of high street brands. Elmsleigh is better for pure shopping, while Two Rivers has more restaurants as well as a Vue Cinema. 

If you’re in the mood for a walk, head to Colne Valley Park, which describes itself as a mosaic of farmland, woodland & water with 200 km of rivers, canals and over 60 lakes. In Staines, this manifests as Staines Moor and Lammas Recreation Ground. Staines Moor is an unspoilt 500-hectare stretch of land that is home to a wealth of wildlife such as deer, foxes, birds, and owls. Lammas Recreation Ground is a beautiful family park featuring a large picnic field, two children’s play areas, a splash park, tennis courts, mini golf, and boat hire. 

Or why not wander along the Thames Path National Trail? It’s a 185-mile footpath following the banks of the river Thames, stretching from the Cotswolds all the way to the Thames Flood Barrier. The terrain is flat and even, making it perfect for both walkers and cyclists, and the bustle of activity on the water means there’s usually something interesting to see as you walk! 

Bars, Restaurants and Nightlife 

Staines is well served by popular high street names such as wagamama, TGI Fridays, and Turtle Bay. And if you’re looking for something a little different, try some of the independent bars and restaurants Staines has to offer. 

If you’re in the mood for authentic fine Indian dining complemented by friendly staff and a warm welcome, head to Roshni’s. Whether you’re in the mood for a time-honoured classic or something more adventurous, the attentive staff and the relaxed atmosphere at Roshni’s guarantee you’ll enjoy an excellent meal! 

Friendly, welcoming, and attentive staff also await you at Flamm, which serves authentic Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine, from hot and cold meze dishes to succulent charcoal grilled meats and traditional vegetarian dishes. With excellent food and an incredible atmosphere, you’ll be visiting Flamm more than once. 

When you’re looking for a drink, head to The Bells. Despite being in the heart of Staines, it’s feels secluded and something of a retreat from the bustling town centre. There’s been a pub on this site since the 17th century, and these days it boasts a huge range of beers, ales, and wines, as well as offering locally-sourced food on its menu. 

You might also enjoy the Three Horseshoes Laleham. It might not date to the 17th century, but it’s a friendly, casual pub with a lovely range of cask ales, fine wines, and great cocktails. With a sunny terrace for summer and a heated barn and a cosy fire inside for colder months, it’s a pub for all seasons. There’s a seasonal menu on offer too if you get peckish. 

The London Stone promises to be “the besterest music bar” in Staines. The community music venue and ale house doesn’t put on airs. Instead, it puts on live music and serves little-known beer. You’ll be welcomed by friendly staff and enveloped by new music and a fantastic atmosphere. The watchword at The London Stone is “fun”. 

Leisure Centres and Outdoor Activities 

Staines offers plenty of ways to get active, get fit, or just get moving. 

Whatever your fitness goals, Spelthorne Leisure Centre has what you need. The centre boasts a state-of-the-art, 120-station gym with motivators and personal trainers to help you get the most out of your workout. The 25m main pool provides six lanes in which to swim, and the teaching pool is perfect for families. The centre also offers a variety of fitness classes, a sports hall that hosts badminton, five-a-side football, and three squash courts. 

If racquet sports are your cup of tea, take a look at Spelthorne Community Tennis Centre. Whether you’re a complete beginner looking for tuition from qualified coaches, or a seasoned player looking to play competitively, you’ll be made to feel welcome. 

Ashford Manor Golf Club was once simply a handful of people playing golf on Staines Moor until it took over the original manor house, which still acts as clubhouse today. The club established a majestic 18-hole course that the club claims to be “the finest greens in Middlesex”, and today welcomes golfers whether they be seasoned players who want to compete or newcomers who want to play a better game. 

If you’re looking to get moving without getting too strenuous, Staines is a walker’s paradise. Thames Path National Trail, Staines Moor, Lammas Recreation Ground and more offer plenty of places to go walking where you can see everything from local wildlife to the bustling activity on the river Thames! 

History of Staines

The first evidence of people living in the area came during the Neolithic period. In 43 CE, the Romans invaded Britain, building a settlement in Staines during the same year. Within a decade, they erected the first ever Staines Bridge, a key river crossing on the so-called Devil’s Highway from London to Silchester.

The town was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as “Stanes”. Further evidence of Staines’ existence during medieval times comes in the form of the London Stone, a local boundary marker indicating the western limit of the City of London’s jurisdiction over the Thames area.

Staines grew in prominence during the 17th and 18th centuries as a regular staging post for journeys by horse and carriage, with numerous coaching inns situated in the area.

In 1864, the town became a major producer of the floor covering linoleum. This quickly became the area’s main industry, with the Staines Lino Factory employing upward of 300 people at its peak. The factory closed around 1970 and is now the site of the Two Rivers shopping centre. This industrial heritage is celebrated with a bronze statue on the High Street depicting two factory workers carrying a roll of lino.
