The Kennedy Memorial at Runnymede

Type:Historic Site

Windsor Road, Old Windsor, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 2JL
The Kennedy Memorial at Runnymede

About

Set in a symbolic acre of land donated to the United States of America by Queen Elizabeth II in 1965, this seven tonne block of Portland stone commemorates the life of President John F Kennedy following his tragic assassination.

Designed by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe, it is maintained by the Kennedy Memorial Trust. Runnymede was felt to be the appropriate place due to the signing of the Magna Carta and its links to the American constitution.
