Staines upon Thames is a bustling Thames-side town located just 17 miles west south-west of Charing Cross in London, just 5½ miles from Windsor and in close proximity to the M25, M3, M4 motorways. And London Heathrow Airport T5 is just 10 minutes by car!
Popular with business travellers working in the area attracted by its ease of access, excellent road connections and mainline railway station providing direct train services into London Waterloo, Staines upon Thames has something to offer all ages.
The towns’ impressive retail shopping areas; The Elmsleigh Centre and Two Rivers also home to a multi-screen Vue cinema and Virgin Active leisure centre are a natural draw as is the pedestrianised high street, its weekly market, high street shopping outlets, restaurants and coffee shops. And if shopping is not your bag then perhaps a relaxing riverside walk along the Thames or visiting neighbouring Runnymede (home to the Magna Carta), Windsor Castle or Windsor Great Park is more your thing. Thorpe Park is only 10 mins by car is not surprisingly popular with the kids….and adults too!
Staines upon Thames ideally lends itself to relocating families who have children attending the nearby American School in Thorpe or the American Community School in Egham as well as assignees working for one of the many international companies at Stockley Park, Chiswick and Bedfont Lakes business parks.
