Information for Coaches

As a free to enter site, we provide the perfect rest stop for groups travelling elsewhere. Located just off the A38 between Lichfield and Burton upon Trent, we are ideally located for a short stop before reaching the M6, M42 and M1. Spend an hour with us and sample our homemade cakes, enjoy a pot of tea and take in our amazing landscape.  

Coach drivers

When you pre-book your visit with us, your coach driver will receive a voucher on arrival to spend in our restaurant. We also provide free coach parking and drop off and pick up points. When pre-booking the exhibition for a group of 10+ the driver will also receive free entry.

Visiting Staffordshire

You could spend a whole day or more exploring the Arboretum, but if you do want to discover the wider area, there is lots on offer. Why not combine a visit to us with one of the other exciting attractions in Staffordshire or the National Forest.


Coach Friendly Status

In September 2017 we were awarded with 'Coach-Friendly' Status. The status recognises and rewards the commitment made by sites such as the National Memorial Arboretum in understanding the requirements of coaches and their passengers, while also providing first-class facilities, access and information for drivers
