Rent an apartment or house in Chertsey for a self-catering break. Only eighteen miles from London in the Runnymede borough of Surrey is the charming town of Chertsey. Situated on the River Thames and one of its tributaries, the River Bourne, Chertsey has a very rich history and is known as being one of the oldest towns in the whole of England. The Chertsey Abbey was founded in 666 AD but only some outer walls of the structure remain. Today the settlement is a bustling market town which has remained much the same as it was in the 18th and 19th centuries, with a vast array of historical buildings, of which many are now listed properties.
