Centrally located, with stunning onsite views; Aspects, our dedicated conferencing and event facilities at the National Memorial Arboretum provides a remarkable and memorable location for large conferences.

Our stunning Oak Suite, with wall-to-ceiling glass framing the spectacular Arboretum and Armed Forces Memorial, holds up to 300 banquet, 180 cabaret or 500 theatre style. Designed with flexibility in mind, the Oak Suite can be divided in three, offering event spaces suitable for 60 – 120 guests each.

With ease-of-use in mind, each space includes plug and play AV, which can be linked together for the larger suite. Combined with our four AV-equipped syndicate rooms, generous lobby with break-out bar and exceptional onsite catering, Aspects is the perfect place for celebrating achievement, building teams and driving success.

Breathtaking ASPECTS

The views from the Oak Suite are spectacular throughout the seasons and each section of the room overlooks one or more of the Arboretum's stunning memorials. The Beat (Police Memorial Avenue) is planted with a tree for every Police Force in the United Kingdom. Each force's crest is displayed on a plaque beside the tree. The Armed Forces Memorial stands at the centre of the panoramic view from Oak 1 and, after dusk, is subtly illuminated providing a majestic backdrop for evening events. The Mediterranean Garden, with its varied maturing trees and collection of symbolic memorials, reminds guests that those remembered here have provided service across the globe.
