Queensmead, a detached part of Wraysbury, is the only part of Berkshire to lie within the M25.

The area, just north of the Thames and west of Staines is dominated by the Queensmead Lake reservoir, which is 1.84 kilometres in width and covers 6.9 hectares.

Two islands lie along the Queensmead section of the River Thames - Holm Island and Hollyhook Island.
