A visit to Runnymede is a must in this its 800th anniversary. Although that said, there's nothing really to see. A very pleasant National Trust building is by the car park. There are interpretation boards and leaflets. So off you walk, across a field to the Kennedy Memorial. Nice enough, although the singular apostrophe in the carving doesn't allow for... More

Such an important national site and all you have to is pay for parking, it is a lovely spot popular for people walking or sitting by the river, and yet you can also walk across the meadows to see the memorial to the Magna Carta or Kennedy. A sort walk up the hill you can also see the Air Forces... More

I was disappointed that such an historic site does not at least have a museum illustrating the history of the area. There is a tea room, 3 memorials from assorted countries and the opportunity for a walk on the meadow and up the hill. That's all.

Visited the National Trust grounds at Runnymede next to the Thames. There are several well laid out walks for different fitness and time duration. The first memorial is to JFK and can be found up a short hillside walk. Retrace your foot steps and walk a 100 m further on and there is a memorial to the signing of the... More

My husband, as a history graduate was excited to see this place and to spend some time with our three month old to have a walk. The site has been well kept and the Runnymede memorial was great to see with good information having been provided. It was lovely to see that there were tea rooms available as well, although...

After paying a hefty £1.50 for an hours parking in a NT car park, we trudged across a very muddy field. The Kennedy memorial is a fair climb up quite a few steps. Worth it though for the view of the Thames. Further along the field it got even muddier, but again worth the trek to see the Magna Carta... More

Great place for kids to run around and get introduced to some significant events in British and American History. Toilets and Tea rooms are very clean too.

Runnymede - the site of the sealing of the Magna Carta - is a rather delightful place. The memorial for Magna Carta as well as John F Kennedy memorial are set back from the main road across a very large field. In February it was a rather muddy one - but one does get a sense of arriving in the... More
