Hollyhock Island is a long, narrow, inhabited island in the River Thames in England on the reach above Penton Hook Lock, administratively in the extreme eastern end of Wraysbury, Berkshire in the middle of a small backwater, close to the northern bank. The centre of the town of Staines-upon-Thames is approximately five times nearer than the centre of Wraysbury village, of which the island is part.
The island is on what was the traditional Buckinghamshire bank upstream of Staines Bridge and 400 m downstream of the M25 Runnymede Bridge and is neighboured by the small Holm Island in the middle of part of its northern backwater.
