Staines-upon-Thames, commonly referred to simply as Staines, is a town on the River Thames in the borough of Spelthorne in Surrey, England. The town changed its official name from Staines to Staines-upon-Thames on 20 May 2012.
The town is within the western bounds of the M25 motorway, 17 miles west south-west of Charing Cross in London. It is within the London Commuter Belt of South East England .

The town does not exceed 4m above river level, it has no woods but instead has a large number of parks and leisure centres. London Heathrow Airport is centred 3 miles away and the railway station is a main stop on the London Waterloo to Reading Line. The town’s proximity to London and Heathrow has attracted a number of companies: Bupa (healthcare) and Wood Group Kenny (Oil&Gas) have major offices, NDS (conditional access DRM provider, now owned by Cisco), Siemens Building Automation Division and British Gas (part of Centrica) have their national headquarters here. The town centre is fairly compact and mainly focused on a wide pedestrianised High Street, housing many familiar High Sreet names. Smaller independent units can be found in Church Street, Clarence Street and the eastern end of the High Street. A market is held every Wednesday and Saturday in the pedestrianised High Street. It is one of the largest and busiest street markets in Surrey Church Street . A moderately-sized shopping centre (Elmsleigh) is directly behind the High Street. The Two Rivers retail park was opened in 2002 and is bisected by the confluence of the rivers Wraysbury and Colne. Retailers as well as a Vue cinema, gym and cafes.
Church Street and Lammas Lane house the oldest properties clustered around the parish church of St Mary. Much housing in the town has garden plots and most neighbourhoods have green spaces such as (Staines Moor, Shortwood Common, Knowle Green, Leacroft, The Lammas and the sports fields and farms on the borders of Laleham. Many of the parks belonged to former grand houses, see Laleham for Lord Lucan’s ‘Laleham House’ which became a Roman Catholic Abbey for a century.
