Arboretum Audio Guide and Exhibitions

Our audio guide provides the perfect way to make the most of your visit to our site. The easy-to-use handset is the perfect way to explore the Arboretum and discover the stories and symbolism behind 90 of our memorials.

The guide can be used throughout your visit whilst you remain on site, but don’t forget to make time to visit the Landscapes of Life exhibition which is included in the price along with access to our temporary exhibition gallery:  

Comprising a mixture of traditional interpretation and interactive exhibits, you will discover a variety of moving and fascinating stories providing the perfect introduction to the Arboretum and its rich collection of memorials and wildlife. You can:

  • Surround yourself in the changing seasons in our 270 degree film drum as you travel through a year in the Arboretum, meeting a variety of fascinating people as you go.
  • Walk through our digital path of leaves, revealing the poppy field beneath.
  • Journey through a timeline of Remembrance.
  • See how World War I provided a watershed in how we remember and the importance in the advent of The Royal British Legion in its capacity as custodians of Remembrance.
  • Explore the symbolism in memorial design and learn how some of them came to be part of the National Memorial Arboretum.   
  • Design your own memorial landscape using a range of natural features, animals, symbols and trees. 
  • Share your story in our memory booth or simply let us know what you think about our very special site.

Your ticket also provides entry into our temporary exhibitions, which change periodically throughout the year. See here for our latest exhibitions.
