About Runnymede Borough Council

The Borough of Runnymede is situated in north-west Surrey and includes Addlestone, New Haw, Ottershaw, Lyne, Longcross, Englefield Green, Virginia Water, the village of Thorpe and the towns of Chertsey and Egham.

The boundary tends to follow the line of the Thames and although situated close to London the area retains most of its rural character; on fine weekends the river and other public open spaces are popular attractions.

There is a large area of Windsor Great Park within the Borough and the meadows of Runnymede, which are famous because of their connection with Magna Carta. Three major memorials are adjacent to the Runnymede meadows, namely, the Magna Carta Memorial donated and maintained by the American Bar Association, and the Kennedy Memorial erected by public subscription in memory of the late President of the United States of America on land donated by the Crown; there is also the Commonwealth Air Forces Memorial which was unveiled in 1953.

Thorpe Park, Britain's first Theme Park, was opened in 1979.

Communications are good with the Borough being served by the M3 and M25 motorways. The area is located within 30 minutes of Central London by rail via Waterloo Station.

International transport links are also excellent owing to the proximity of Heathrow Airport. The Borough is predominantly residential but does have a number of light industries.
