It is the birthplace of democracy... it has the JFK memorial... and a massive tribute to those who gave their lives for us all today. How can you be less than amazed and happy with this place

The JFK memorial was in a beautifully designed setting. It's a shame that it is not wheelchair accessible. It does seem a little strange that the Magna Carta memorial was erected by the American Bar Association but it has been beautifully done. The Jurors installation was amazing. The walks were well signposts and helpful to have timings. It's a beautiful... More

There's actually nothing to see here. A bunch of kitschy memorials put up by Americans, a field, and that's about it.

It was an interesting visit and we were greeted by a member of staff from the office who was very helpful. The one downside was the toilets which were not very clean and no soap in dispenser.

It is difficult to know what to expect when visiting Runnymede. It is simply the location of a very important event. What I found strange was the lack of any British monument marking the event. The USA Bar Association have found it significant enough to erect a memorial, in fact you might be forgiven for assuming the USA are more... More

This year Runnymede celebrates the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. We've been here many times and since we get free parking as members of the National Trust we thought we'd go and see the new art installation in the meadows. The artwork by the sculpture artists Hew Locke does not disappoint. Located in front of the... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to be invited to Runnymede for the 800 year anniversary celebrations of the Magna Carta . Whilst Runnymede meadows have always been worth a visit ,the memorial and the wonderful riverside location alone is enough to warrant going to this National Trust location the added Hew Locke art installation, the Jurors ,funded by...

As 2015 is the 800th anniversary of the signing of the first Magna Carta (yes there were later versions) this is an important place to visit. For an Englishman it is somewhat embarrassing that the only monument here was erected by the American Bar Association. The other site worth seeing is the JFK memorial, which is actually now US territory.... More

A beautiful day, beautiful setting, but very difficult to find the historic monuments due to very poor signing, so we followed the well worn path. To visit theJFK memorial you need to be fit and would be virtually impossible for wheelchair users or those whose mobility is poor. The café/shop was poorly staffed and had to wait 15 minutes to...

Excellent parking at £1.50 an hour or £6 for the day. Two team rooms, paddling pool for children and great walks along the Thames with trees and benches. Great place for picnics and romantic walks.
