Runnymede is an attractive area of riverside meadows, grassland and broadleaved woodland, rich in flora and fauna, and with a network of pleasant footpaths. It was on this site, in 1215, that King John sealed Magna Carta, an event commemorated by the American Bar Association Memorial. The John F. Kennedy Memorial and various memorial trees are indicative of the area's importance in world history. Also here are the Fairhaven Lodges and Kiosks, designed by Lutyens, one of which is now an art gallery.
