The Queen Elizabeth II Reservoir lies to the south of the River Thames and to the west of the Island Barn Reservoir. To the north are the Bessborough and Knight reservoirs. The A3050 runs to the north of the reservoir and it is situated in Walton on Thames. It is managed by Thames Water.

The reservoir was authorised by the Metropolitan Water Board Act 1935 . Excavation work on the reservoir started in 1936 under the supervision of the Board’s chief engineer Jonathan Davidson but was suspended upon the outbreak of war in 1939. Work only recommenced in 1957 and was undertaken by W. & C. French. The reservoir was completed in 1962 and was formally opened by the Queen on 30 March 1962.
