Runnymede is an attractive area of riverside meadows, grassland and broadleaved woodland, rich in flora and fauna, and with a network of pleasant footpaths. It was on this site, in 1215, that King John sealed the Magna Carta, an event commemorated by the American Bar Association Memorial. The John F. Kennedy Memorial and various memorial trees are indicative of the area's importance in world history. Also here are the Fairhaven Lodges and Kiosks, designed by Lutyens, one of which is now an office.

A network of footpaths links the Magna Carta memorial with two others: one to the late American President, John F. Kennedy, and one to the 20,000 Royal Air Force airmen killed in the Second World War, who have no known grave.

        Arrangements for Magna Carta 800
In the week running up to the event, we will be doing our very best to keep as much of Runnymede open as possible at all times, particularly the Magna Carta memorial. However, for the weekend of the 13 and 14 June we regret that we’re unable to guarantee any area of the site will be open as normal.  Access on the morning of Monday 15 June will be by advance invitation only. It is hoped we will be able to reopen the site to visitors after 2pm.

For the week after the 15 June, the site will be open to visitors but please bear with us as we remove the infrastructure put in place for the 800th anniversary event.

All coach companies wishing to arrange visits to Runnymede are asked to contact the property direct on 01784 432891 or e mail runnymede@nationaltrust.org.uk in advance of their visit to enable us to co-ordinate their requirements.

For all the latest updates on our plans for the Magna Carta 800th anniversary, please visit our website at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/runnymede, facebook or twitter pages.
