With a new development in Chertsey, Bridge House, 39 one and two-bedroom apartments close to the banks of the Thames, we’ve taken a look at all the great outdoor activities the area has to offer.
Hire a boat and explore riverside sites such as Windsor Castle and Garrick’s Temple in Hampton village. Prices start at £25 per hour for a four-person motor boat.
Offering bushcraft experiences in a secluded woodland spot, campers of all ages are invited to ‘go native’ and learn traditional survival skills, trying their hand at archery, baking bread, orienteering, foraging, wilderness first-aid and much more.

Taking around 45 minutes to complete, the nature trail reaches the second highest point in Runnymede, offering wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and the site of an ancient fort.
The Great Cockcrow is a miniature railway where you can catch a glimpse of wild animals and enjoy the views at Cockcrow Hill. Family tickets are available from £12.

Longcross is McLaren’s ground of choice with the F1 team using the circuit for their own testing. Available for the public to drive on through 6th Gear, it is akin to a mini Nürburgring with hills, long fast straights and sweeping bends through a forest backdrop.
