Magnat Carter memorial Runnymede


The Borough of Runnymede is famous for its monuments, the most famous being the one to commemorate the Magna Carta. The area is a riverside setting of meadows, grassland and woodland with a network of pleasant paths and pleasure gardens.

There is free access to Runnymede with the only charge being the car parks. There is a noticeboard in the car park with a map and signs to the memorials.

There are three memorials:

  • The Magna Carta - it was on this site in 1215 that King John  signed the Magna Carta
  • JFK Memorial - memorial to the celebrated president by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe owned by the Kennedy Trust but maintained by the National Trust.
  • Air Forces Memorial - commemorates the 20,000 Royal Air Force airmen killed in the Second World War, who have no known grave.

Runnymede Pleasure Gardens

There is a play area with play equipment, a paddling pool, cafe and children’s amusements alongside the River Thames. Excellent base for walks along the river, picnics and boat trips. Nearby is the  Bells of Ouzeley, which is featured in Jerome K. Jerome’s ‘Three Men and a Boat’
