Royal Holloway’s campus has ample space to get away from it all, but there are many places worth visiting in the local area, too. For a taste of true English history, why not visit the water meadows at Runnymede? The spot, where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215, is just a short walk from the college down by the River Thames.
For more history, Windsor Castle and Eton College are only 10 minutes away and Hampton Court Palace, the residence of King Henry VIII, is nearby too.
If you enjoy the great outdoors, Windsor Great Park offers 5000 acres of undulating parkland, with a deer park, Virginia Water lake and Savill and Valley gardens only a short drive (or walk) from the college.
And for children big and small, Legoland is a must-visit attraction, again only a short drive away.
