You spend time sightseeing, and then your Majestic Cruise boat vacations on the Thames lure you past Chertsey to incredible Windsor Castle. Along the way, you stop often at waterside pubs for a bit of steak and kidney pie! Chertsey Chertsey is one of the oldest towns in England, founded in 666AD. These days this picturesque village, with its antique shops and restaurants, host an annual country fair dating back to 1883. In stark contrast, it is also home to Thorpe Park, the UK's leading Theme Park. Sunbury-on-Thames The ancient Bronze Age riverside settlement now forms an attractive leafy suburb of London. Sunbury is the home of the London Irish Rugby Club and just to the east lies Kempton Park Racecourse. Walton-on-Thames Walton-in-Thames, overlooked by the unusual square flint tower of St Mary's Saxon Church that stands at the town's highest point, is a vibrant town offering numerous shops and restaurants. In particular, its exciting new retail complex combines top high street fashion with delicious, alfresco dining. Kingston-Upon-Thames Kingston-upon-Thames was once the coronation place of Saxon Kings (902 – 978). Today this busy market town has developed into a major shopping and entertainment hub, although it retains much of its original charm. It also has a strong arts culture and a vibrant festival programme. Staines Staines is a bustling town which attracts scores of visitors to its impressive retail areas - The Elmsleigh Centre and Two Rivers, as well as the town centre with its pedestrianised shopping area offering a wide range of shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs. Egham This water-meadow alongside the Thames makes a great place to moor up and enjoy a stroll or reflect on world history. It was near here, at Runnymede in 1215, that the historic Magna Carta was sealed. This charter laid down the foundations of much of the current British constitution and law. Windsor The Royal Town of Windsor is full of history and charm and is home to Britain's largest inhabited castle and royal residence of over 900 years – Windsor Castle. You'll also find a bustling town centre with contemporary shopping, fine dining and leisure activities. Well worth a stop for the day. Eton Across the river from Windsor is Eton, home to the famous public school, Eton College, one of the most exclusive schools in the world with annual fees of around £20,000. The ancient desks and benches bear the graffiti of generations of former pupils, which include 19 former British Prime Ministers.
