Accessibility

We endeavour to cater for the needs of all our visitors and try and accommodate all access requirements where possible.

As a maturing landscape with many natural features, certain areas of the Arboretum may present challenges for those with special access requirements. There is level access to the Remembrance Centre, where toilet facilities are available. Firm, level paths give good access to much of the site, however many memorials are accessible over grass and may present a challenge for some visitors.

Wheelchairs and electric scooters are available to hire. To ensure availability, they should be booked in advance. We respectfully ask that a donation is made for the use of a manual wheelchair; a charge of £5 applies of the hire of a motorised scooter. Payment will be taken at the time of booking. Please note that motorised scooters are not permitted in the Remembrance Centre, manual wheelchairs are provided for indoor use. 

Working assistance dogs are allowed in all areas of the Arboretum.
