Landscapes of Life

With Arboretum Audio Guide

Journey through a history of Remembrance from ancient burial mound rituals through to contemporary social media tributes. 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.

Surround yourself by the changing seasons as you travel through a year in the Arboretum, meeting a variety of fascinating people as you go. Discover the many stories behind some of the memorials in our grounds, explore the symbolism in their designs and learn how they came to be part of the National Memorial Arboretum.   

Younger visitors will enjoy walking through our path of leaves, revealing the poppy field beneath and then designing their own memorial landscape using a range of natural features, animals, symbols and trees. 

Before you leave, tell us your story in our memory booth or simply let us know what you think about our very special site.

A ticket for Landscapes of Life also provides entry into the Palette: An Immersive Journey into Colour and Art

An audio guide interpreting 93 of the memorials on site is included in the ticket price for Landscapes of Life.
