Today, 15 June 2013, marks the 798th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. We went to the small and charming Runnymede in Surrey where King John signed  the Magna Carta on the 15th June 1215, prompted unwillingly by the barons in order to protect their privileges and in an attempt to limit  the King’s  powers.

According to the historians the Magna Carta was signed on the island in the River Thames but we couldn’t get there. Instead we visited the Memorial.

Happy Birthday to the Magna Carta, ReadyClickAndGo

The travel professional with years of experience in the travel industry – in guiding, reservations, operations, contracting, customer service and product development – and have travelled extensively in Asia and Eastern Europe not just on holiday but also for work, inspecting hotels, visiting attractions and seeing exactly what each destination has to offer. The only way I could do this properly was with my own guide, car and driver and this inspired me to create my own range of customised private day tours for other people to be able to explore in-depth and learn to love their destination as much as I do.
