Your visit

The Heritage Lottery Fund have awarded us a grant of £1.6m so we can transform the way in which visitors experience Runnymede. As part of this we have recently refurbished the tea-room to ensure that it is fully accessible for all of our visitors. 

We have free WiFi available so you can stay connected and you can choose to sit either on one of our indoor tables or outdoor picnic benches with views over the meadows. 

Food and drink

Drop in and enjoy a hearty bowl of soup on a cold day, or chill out and cool down with a refreshing ice cream when the weather’s warm. Our menu changes accroding to the season, with lighter meals available in the summer along with plenty of cooling icecreams and warming soups and jacket potatoes for when the weather turns. For all the other days in-between you'll find tasty sandwiches made fresh on-site every day by our friendly team.

And it wouldn’t be a visit to the National Trust without sampling a slice of cake. Our tea-room is no exception, serving our traditional round cakes and tray bakes. Choose from delicious treats such as Victoria sponge, fruit scones and shortbread along with brownies and flapjacks.

Shopping and gifts

Once you're fully refreshed drop in on our small, but perfectly formed, gift shop. We've got a great range of National Trust favourites, from jams and marmalades to picnic rugs and cookbooks. You can also pick up a range of souvenirs and books celebrating Runnymede's unique spirit as the birthplace of modern democracy.
