This is a beautiful spot on the River Thames which I used to visit a lot when i was a child. The only thing that stopped me giving it an excellent was the fact that the Magna Carta memorial itself was covered in scaffolding and there was no warning about this before we visited. The cafe is rather limited on... More

Parked at national trust car park and walked along the river to the pleasure ground. Lovely walk but all grass so hard to push the double buggy along, took turns with the hubby. Didn't do the memorials as paths were also grass. Pleasure ground has quite a good playground plus a pretty naff bit with coin operated rides some of... More

Beautiful destination for a riverside walk in stunning countryside. Runneymede and JFK Memorials both very interesting. Parking is not cheap but everything else is free. Small coffee and gift shop, not the greatest.

Runnymede is the kind of place you only visit on the way to or from somewhere else. However, it is worth stopping off in the car park - paying the fee and walking across the fields to the memorials (which are free to visit). The American Bar Association put up the real memorial to the signing of the Great Charter.... More

We must have driven past the Runnymede site at least ten times over the years , but always on the way to somewhere else , usually in a hurry , and so have never stopped to explore . 2015 being the 800th Anniversary of the signing of the " Great Charter " , we did make the effort , and... More

We were staying in the Windsor area for a week and spent one morning out at Runnymede and had an enjoyable walk. The memorials give a bit of interesting variety although we strayed off the NT path and looped in a bit of public footpath across the fields from the top of the JFK memorial and across towards the Air...

I drive through here quite often on my way to work and I've wanted to go walking here for ages. So I went with the boyfriend, with brownies and jelly beans packed in our bags, on a nice walk there. The historical stuff is really good, but just to be in a place that has so much GREEN as far... More

Thank God for the Americans!! We left Runnymede thinking that if their Bar Association hadn't stepped in and set up the Magna Carta memorial, and the John F Kennedy Memorial Act hadn't been passed by the UK parliament, there wouldn't be anything to see or do on Runnymede meadow, let alone mark the signing of arguably the most important document...

Magna Carta memorial and John Kennedy memorial well kept on site. A visit to the Air Force Memorial was particularly moving, and was built like a war time air force building with conning tower which has beautiful views over the Thames Valley.
