Lovely way to while away a couple of hours. Nice tea room with car park. Wonderful views from the top of the hill, Wembley stadium and the London skyline are all visible with the naked eye. Also, definitely make the drive around the corner to the war memorial. Climb the spiral staircase up onto the roof for the best views... More

If you are in the area, just make the time to come here. The setting is so inspiring, the monument is so touching and really quite beautiful, and the views of the local area are stunning. This place makes remembering our fallen, what it should be touching, beautiful and sobering.

Being an avid fan of a National Trust day out, we set about using our cards on a day of nothingness. Unfortunately though this didn't really brighten the day either... Odd parking setup with none of the usual NT guards to check up on you and a very odd (but great drinks and lunch nibble selection) cafe by another small... More

The large car park was closed but the smaller one by the tearoom/information centre on the opposite side of the road was almost empty anyway. There were no immediate signs but a local couple directed us to the original place where Magna Carta was signed. However, we could not see this & wandered on to the Kennedy memorial located at...

We have passed through Runnymede several times whilst visiting family and thought how lovely it looked. This time as the weather was beautiful we decided to spend time here before we began our journey home. We were not disappointed. We are National Trust members so we parked for free near to the toilets and NT tea room by displaying our... More

I have wanted to visit this site for years and at 60 I eventually got there! Unfortunately due to heavy traffic travelling from Norfolk we didn't get there until 4 in the afternoon! Fortunately the Magna Carta Cafe was open so we had a cream tea served by very friendly staff. We then set off to see the memorials which... More

Well looked after walks with easy and free access (apart form the car park charge) to the Magna Carta area and JFK memorial. The tea room is a nice little place for a cuppa afterwards.

Beautiful place steeped in history.... National trust members park for free and there is a little tea room for a refreshing cup of tea and clean WC facilities. There are a couple of different walks with a guild leaflet and a couple of interesting things to see and read about. Great way to while away a couple of hours on... More
