great-fosters

Great Fosters was once reputedly a Royal hunting lodge in the heart of Windsor forest and for nearly four centuries the stately Elizabethan home of many notable families. Great Fosters today is no ordinary hotel. It is quintessentially English – a place of great charm and tradition – a scheduled Grade 1 Historic Monument. For over half a century it has entertained a galaxy of important and discriminating guests from the film star world, from high society and from big business. Great Fosters maintains the atmosphere and splendour of the past and is renowned worldwide as England’s most distinguished country hotel.

magna

If other parts of England lay claim to be the heart of the country then Runnymede is undoubtedly its soul. It was at Runnymede Meadows beside the Thames, on 15 June 1215, that King John met his barons to discuss their grievances and, in order to prevent a civil war, agreed to seal a Great Charter (Magna Carta). In its principles and subsequent interpretations this was to have a profound and significant influence on rights and freedoms, not only in England, but across much of the civilised world.
