    Staines – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Ali G
      Having become the butt of numerous jokes, Staines set to distance itself from Sacha Baron Cohen’s Ali G character and his ‘Staines Massive’ by reinventing itself, so in 2011 changed its name to Staines-upon-Thames.
    2. Twinned with Paradise
      While most towns might twin with a French or German counterpart, Staines can boast links with the tropical paradise with Mauritius. The wider area of Spelthorne is officially twinned with Grand Port Savanne, home to Mauritius International Airport, handy if you’re thinking of jetting off from nearby Heathrow.
    3. It Has Its Own Day
      Staines-upon-Thames Day is a big event (in Staines). There’s a parade, three stages with live entertainment, activities on the River Thames, street food, a fun fair, duck race (rubber, not feathered), all in order to raise money for local charities.
    4. Early Days
      While the town’s status might have taken a hit in recent years, Staines really is a bit special. It has stunning stretches of riverside, diverse shops and great history. The Romans named the town ‘Pontes’ in reference to the bridge built by the Romans in 43AD. At the time is was the only major bridge across the Thames outside London. In 1009 a Viking army led by Sweyn Forkebeard passed through Staines to avoid London where an army was being assembled to push the Danes out of Wessex.
    5. Other Visitors
      Staines was a major stop for stagecoaches to and from London which brought visitors including Charles Dickens, Admiral Nelson and Lady Hamilton. Another visitor was Sir Walter Raleigh who was wasn’t sight-seeing but tried for treason in the town in 1603. At the trial, which was held outside of London due to the Great Plague, Raleigh was found guilty and imprisoned until 1616.
    6. Magna Carter
      One of the most important documents in English history, the Magna Carter was signed in 1215 at Runnymede, close to Staines. A number of the Barons who forced King John’s hand into signing the treaty stayed in Staines before the signing. A slightly more auspicious claim to fame than the fact that Staines was once the home of the UK linoleum industry, there is even a statue dedicated to lino in the town centre.

    About Staines

    A modern, multi-cultural town, Staines is home to all the big high street names with excellent transport links. You can be in London’s West End in under 40 minutes. Heathrow is a short hop. Drivers have easy access to motorways and there are even escapes on the River Thames.

    The town has been a major part of life in the South East since the first bridge was built by the Romans in 43AD. Visitors to the town have included Charles Dickens, Admiral Nelson and even Sir Water Raleigh (although he was put on trial for treason, so not a great day out).


    There aren’t many towns that can claim to be twinned with Mauritius or have its own day (Staines-Upon-Thames Day, which actually changes every year) but Staines likes to be different. The town’s big day is a huge celebration with a carnival, parade, live music and more.

    Adventurers will find plenty to get their teeth into. There are water activities, riding stables and Thorpe Park at nearby Chertsey. There are several golf courses in the area along with nature reserves, for those that prefer a more leisurely pace.


    Just a short hop from Heathrow Airport, Staines offers superb transport routes such as the M3 and M25 motorways. London Waterloo is 35 minutes away, although Staines is outside the Oyster Card system, so you will need an extra ticket. Other public transport includes bus routes and a great network of cycle routes for those wanting to make their travel a little bit greener.
