The JFK memorial is a pleasant 40 minute walk along the river from The Runnymede on Thames. Following the assassination of President John F Kennedy in 1963, a large stone memorial was installed halfway up the Cooper’s Hill Slopes at Runnymede, on an area of land donated to the United States of America by Queen Elizabeth II. It commands splendid views of the area and consists of a garden and memorial tablet inscribed with the famous quote from his Inaugural Address.
