Egham, Surrey
The Runnymede on Thames


Egham is situated in the north east of Surrey and is on the doorstep of the historic site where the Magna Carta was sealed in 1215 and recently celebrating 800 years.

The town has good rail links into London and it also has a number of international companies based in the town including Procter and Gamble and Blackberry.

Things to do in Egham

There are a number of memorials in the area including the Air Forces Memorial on Cooper’s Hill, the Kennedy Memorial and Magna Carta Memorial by the River Thames on the Runnymede Meadows.

Why not hire with River Thames Boat Hire that has such boats as the Two Electric Riverboats - for a perfectly tranquil cruise down the Thames, great for families who want to spend a morning or afternoon on the river.

In Egham itself there is good range of shops, local history can be investigated at the Museum in the Literary Institute and there is a large leisure centre catering for a wide range of sporting and leisure activities.

If you're thinking of staying in Egham then why not stay at luxurious the runnymede-on-thames.
