Take the 'Magna Carta and the City' walk

Today marks 800 years since the sealing of Magna Carta at Runnymede, and whilst that field near Windsor is almost certainly the most important location associated with it, the City of London played its own role in the events that led to this great moment in our history and was specifically named in the document, with London's Mayor appointed to ensure its provisions were adhered to.

The City of London is organising free daily walks exploring the City's connection with Magna Carta on a daily basis from now until 20th September. Those wishing to take one should meet at 11am at the underground entrance to Blackfriars Station on the northern side of Blackfriars Bridge.
