A very charismatic place, surrounded by trees and winding steps to the memorial. Best to go in dry weather though, as the steps can be slippery. It is a special place for me.

To get to this site you need to climb steep stairs so visitors be aware — when they are wet, they are extremely slippery and I had to climb on the ground hill rather than the steps due to this. Please keep that in mind...More

If you are in the area and have a spare hour this is well worth a visit, plenty more things to see and do that are walkable from the same car park if you have more time

I had not realised that this memorial existed. Well worth a five minute diversion to see. An interesting piece of history.

If you have an hour spare it's worth a walk across the park to see the memorial but little else to do unless you picnic.

A short walk up the hill from the Runnymede plain to see the large slab of stone in memorial of John F kennedy with quotations from his inauguration speech.

Lovely setting above the river Thames a short walk from the National Trust Car park. Tricky access if you are disabled or have leg problems -uneven path.

A pretty underwhelming monument to the American president. A slab of stone with words on it. If you like minimalism, this is it. Luckily there are more interesting monuments in the area: 'The Jurors - Twelve Chairs At Runnymede' is right nearby and well worth...More

It's a short walk across the grass from the Magna Carta Tea rooms to the memorial and they have put a rather interesting circle of chairs in the middle of the field you walk across which is worth a look. The car park is free... More
