Mini guide to Staines

     

A quaint suburb outside the City of Guildford in Surrey, Staines is a quiet place to use as a base to explore the rest of Surrey. Surrey is dubbed the 'Garden of England' and is known for its beautiful countryside, quaint villages and parks. There is something for every visitor, with a range of outdoor activities, historic sites, and amusement parks.

For those travelling with children, Staines is in easy reach of two famous theme parks: Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures. Thorpe Park boasts many fantastic rides and shows, with something for everyone. Chessington World of Adventures boasts a water park, as well as thrill rides and several themed areas.

Staines itself is a small village and strolling around you will come across the Staines Town Hall (built in 1880 in Flemish style), and the Memorial Gardens, with a war memorial and the Spelthorne museum, which is housed in the old fire station and has displays detailing the history of the area. For garden lovers, the Sunbury Walled Garden is a must visit. Built in the 18th century, the garden covers roughly two acres and includes a magnificent Victorian Rose Garden. The adjoining Parish Church of St. Mary's, built in the 12th century, is also worth a visit.

For those who love to walk, try the Three Rivers Amble, a three mile walk from Staines Station to Wraysbury Station, along riverside paths, field paths and public paths. Also, in the third week of July every year, the 'Swan Upping' takes place on the Thames at the Sunbury Locks. This is an annual census of the swan population, dating back to medieval times and is a spectacle worth seeing.

Staines can easily be reached from the M25 Motorway, roughly 40 minutes by car from Central London. Both Gatwick and Heathrow Airports are within easy reach either by public transport or by car. There are also several trains an out from London Waterloo station (duration: 20 minutes).
