We arrived to see the Magna Carta monument, but when we we met the very helpful guide at the car park he gave us a map that contained a good 2-3 hour walk around the site, that also incorporated the JFK memorial and the RAF memorial. The highlight was the walk up the stairs to the RAF memorial which is... More

We went there to see the monument dedicated to Magna Carta, but we ended up walking up the hill to the RAF monument, then along the Thames. It's a place filled with history flavour and you can enjoy a great walk in the woods and along the Thames. Loved the RAF monument, really impressive, a great tribute to the pilots... More

Perched atop Cooper's Hill, this memorial is visible from around the Runnymede area and always looks quite imposing. Like all memorials of this size, it's even more imposing when you go in. Lined with the names of 20,000+ 'fallen' aircrew who have no known graves, it understandably has that respectful and mainly silent feeling about it which these memorials often... More

Stopped off here after a visit to Winsdor - great decision. There are sculptures and information on the history of the Magna Carta and the Kennedy memorial too. The National Trust have someone by the car park and tea rooms all the time and they could not be more helpful or kind Highly recommedn a visit to here

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.
