Micro Event: Runnymede and the Copper Horse
3 people attending
3 places left
Please note: this is a Friday walk.
Runnymede: the place where British democracy began when King John set his seal on the Magna Carta in 1215. Runnymede is near the Roman crossing of the Thames at Staines and was a regular meeting place for the Anglo-Saxon kings before John was forced by his barons to seal its place in history. Nowadays there stands British and American memorials to democracy and the rule of law. Nearby is the RAF memorial to the airmen who joined the allies fighting in World War II, and Windsor Great Park. Our walk will take in all three.
