Well, for me anyway because I fell for a girl here, and she is now my wife of nearly 18 years. Runnymede is a nice walk along the river, lots of interesting river craft, and snacks and ice cream. It is nice for a picnic and a few hours of relaxation.

We cycled through the Park and had a service at the Air Force Memorial as part of the Help for Heroes Hero Ride. It was great and the park is a lovely area with plenty to see and do and lots of walking around below the memorial. It's a bit steep up to it though!

I thought that the National Trust would have made a big effort to make this site special.....especially in this year of the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. I was greatly disappointed....the memorial, provided by the U.S. bar Association, is very dignified, but the surroundings and infrastructure are very limited and really disappointing. The shop is one of the worst... More

Visited the RAF memorial in Runnymede and was most impressed. It is an interesting structure with amazing views from Windsor Castle in the west, Heathrow airport in the north to the skyscrapers of the City in the East - and its free! There is free parking and loos near the memorial and we then walked down the hillside through the... More

The foundations of modern democracy started here on June 15 1215 when King John was convinced to sign the Magna Charta. I am decended from the 1st Earl of Winchester who led the Barons effort to convince King John to sign.

The new Magna Carta chair sculpture is thought provoking and the John F Kennedy memorial is an emotional experience if you were alive when he died.

Runnymede is situated on a particularly picturesque part of the River Thames. There are several memorials to be seen quite close to the National Trust car park. The most visited is probably the Magna Carta Memorial about 10 mins walk from the car park. Nearby is the very recent scupting of 'The Jurors'. A popular visit is to the J.F.... More

I found the Egham to Runnymede circular walk on the National Trusts web pages for Runnymede and it was ideal for a sunny evening stroll. Free parking at Egham library was taken advantage of and I was soon unexpectedly admiring Ferraris and Maseratis (in a showroom) as I walked to Coopers Hill Lane where the walk starts. The new sculpture... More

Great place just to 'be'. An expensive car park is the only low point that robs it of a 5 star rating. Shop, toilets, and tea room all in a single building opposite the car park. A busy road to cross, but a traffic light controlled crossing so pretty safe to get over the road. Extensive marked walking trails taking... More

Less than a week after the anniversary celebrations little has changed since I came here 15 years ago EXCEPT the positioning of 12 bronze chairs representing the jury system. I was initially cynical but they are quite solid, quite ornate and quietly impressive. Just hope they are vandal proof. Walked all along the edge of the meadow opposite the river... More
