The Magna Carta
Tourist trails celebrating the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta have been unveiled and include Windsor and Runnymede.

The Magna Carta 800th Anniversary Committee has put together the trails together to commemorate the 10 Charter towns and other places connected with the Magna Carta, sealed by King John on June 15, 1215.

The first trail starts in central London and finishes in Windsor, taking in the Magna Carta Room at the British Library and the 'meeting meadow' in Runnymede where King John sealed the document.

On the last day of the trail, visitors will be able to take a guided tour of Windsor Castle and visit the Windsor and Royal Borough Museum at Windsor Guildhall.

Other trails around the country include Salisbury and Wiltshire, cathedral cities of the North, Kent and East Sussex, East of England, and Hereford to Oxford.

Celebrations are expected around the world for the commemoration of the signing of the Magna Carta.
