Places to go – The British Library – The Magna Carta exhibition.

062985I am sure that you are aware that this year marks the 8ooth anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. You can find out more about it from this excellent UEA website here. Moreover, if you are in London and have a spare hour, you might like to visit the British Library to see the real thing in their excellent Magna Carta: Law, Liberty, Legacy exhibition. Finally you can see David Starkey’s Magna Carta below. It is free for under 18s.

    If you live in the south west, one of the four original copies can be found at Salisbury Cathedral, a very small exhibition but in the beautiful Chapter House of Salisbury Cathedral so worth a visit.

    I’ve seen the Salisbury one and the one in Hereford Cathedral, but I’ve just come back from a trip to Durham where I saw the three copies that they have (1216, 1225 and 1300). Their Magna Carta exhibition is small, but perfectly formed and I would definitely recommend a visit. They’ve got hold of some wonderful documents (the original trial record of Charles I for a start). Go if you can.
