Wraysbury Area Guide
Situated along the Eastern bank of the river Thames between Windsor and Staines, the pretty village of Wraysbury is deeply rooted in history, with its’ existence recorded in the Domesday Book of 1066. With the Magna Carta Island, located within the village’s parish, touted as an alternative location for the sealing of the Magna Carta in 1215, the village is engrained with its’ historical origins.
In modern times, Wraysbury is a vibrant village established in a local area full of sporting and leisure opportunities.

Equestrians are well catered for with riding in Windsor’s Great Park. Racing enthusiasts have both Windsor and the world-famous Ascot racecourses nearby.
Wraysbury itself hosts an annual village fete, attracting a wide variety of stalls and fun for the family, and the local Scouts and Guides organisations provide a wealth of activities for children to partake in.
