Magna Carta

Riverside landscape, where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, with memorials and a tearoom. Runnymede is famous as the site of the sealing of Magna Carta, but today it’s home to a collection of memorials to the struggle for liberty. As well as the monument to Magna Carta, you can visit memorials to JFK and the Allied Air Forces of the Second World War.

Nearly 800 years ago, King John met with a group of barons on this small patch of countryside. It was here he sealed Magna Carta, seen by many as the symbolic first step on the road to modern democracy. In this spirit, today Runnymede has several memorials to the ongoing struggle for liberty.
