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

Come and see one of the most monumental pieces of history in our time. It's pretty awe-inspiring. Lovely views, and there's plenty of stuff to do nearby, with Virginia Water only being about half an hour at most away.

The world famous Magna Carta was sealed at the picturesque Runnymede site. This is well worth a visit from anyone interested in law history or beautiful countryside. There is a good National Trust café for a bite to eat and drink. The only improvement would be to have more information provided about the history of the Magna Carta.

I visited the Royal Air Force, Magna Carta and Kennedy Memorial the same day. They were all maintained so well, and the walk to get there is wild and full of luxurious plants and trees. The Royal Air Force Memorial was the most emotional of those sites. I saw very old women looking for the names of their husbands or... More

Peaceful even on a busy day. Tea shop excellent quality. Boat trips good - parking in Windsor is a nightmare so get a token with your boat ticket & arrive in style. One of the trips leaves you 4 hours in Windsor, so pre-book a Castle visit., Lovely area & lots of history,

Thank Sue W
