About

Riverside site of the sealing of Magna Carta

Runnymede’s diverse natural landscapes provide a backdrop for its unique history. The ancient ‘meeting meadow’ witnessed King John’s sealing of the Magna Carta in 1215. This charter has informed democratic constitutions around the world to this day.

This fine river landscape, together with the magnificent views from Cooper’s Hill and the various memorials at Runnymede, helps us consider important moments in our history and their meaning today. Our beautiful countryside provides the perfect setting in which to remember and reflect, or enjoy as the mood takes you.

Just across the river, you can escape from the traffic, noise and crowds at Ankerwycke - where you’ll find the ruins of the Benedictine priory and a 2.500-year-old Yew tree. It’s a bit off the beaten track and there’s no grand car park - but if you’re happy to forgo these amenities, you’ll discover a hidden gem.
