With two bases to choose from on the River Thames, it can be hard to decide where to start your cruise. Cruising from Benson takes in the best of the great British countryside. If you like tranquil, pretty stretches of water and acres of open pastures, hills and farmland - this is the right end of the Thames for you. Whereas a cruise from Chertsey will take you through many towns and more-populated areas. It’s a good part of the river for gazing at expensive riverside houses and imagining which one you'd choose - there are waterfront mansions aplenty here.
So which end of the Thames takes your fancy? Take a look at the photos below to see which base suits you.
