Radisson Blu Edwardian, London to host Magna Carta replica in celebration of 800th Anniversary

To mark this year’s 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, Radisson Blu Edwardian, London, as the Official Hotel Partner to London’s Magna Carta 800 Commemorations, has announced they will play host to a replica document in central London.

The replica copy of the 1297 charter supporting public freedoms will be on display for visitors in the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Bloomsbury Street hotel from 23rd March. The 1297 charter, on display at the City of London Heritage Gallery from 1st June – 1st October, is considered to be one of the finest 13th century Magna Cartas still in existence.  

“We’re delighted to be the official hotel partner to the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. We recognise the importance of a strong heritage – we’re proud of ours, having been a London brand since the opening of our first hotel in 1978. Our properties are perfectly located across the capital and in Guildford providing the ideal base when visiting the Magna Carta sites at both the British Library and Runnymede,” says Linda Plant, Group Director of Sales from Edwardian Group London.  

“Magna Carta is one of the most important historical documents in the world. We value its impact on today’s business practices. Here at Radisson Blu Edwardian, London, we are delighted to be lucky enough to have this replica within our Bloomsbury Street property and expect to see a record number of guests this summer as a result. As a family business with a strong collaborative and collegiate working environment this partnership is a fantastic opportunity; demonstrating the importance of this prestigious charter.”  

In September, together with support from Radisson Blu Edwardian, London, the newly developed Magna Carta Trails and supporting website were launched. In commemoration of the milestone 800 year anniversary of the Magna Carta six new geographic tourist trails, each covering different aspects of the Magna Carta’s story, have been devised.  

Sir Robert Worcester KBE DL, chair of the Magna Carta 800th Anniversary Committee said: “I am pleased with our partnership with Radisson Blu Edwardian, London which is helping us to promote to visitors and all those interested in England’s heritage the many beautiful sites and locations associated with Magna Carta. This website and the suggested trails will be an invaluable source for everyone.”
