The National Memorial Arboretum is now open for pre-booked visitors only. In order to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our visitors and team members, there is a limited capacity on site, booking will be required, queuing systems, and one way pathways through the Remembrance Centre and Heroes’ Square. Additional measures are in place, including hygiene screens and extra cleaning. The Shop and Restaurant, serving a variety of takeaway snacks and drinks, are open. Daily activities, including guided walks, talks and the land train will not take place until further notice. Toilet facilities in the Remembrance Centre will be open. 

Bookings must be made on line and only visitors pre-booking a vehicle will be granted access to site. Further information and details on how to book can be found here.


Schools, Youth Groups and Military Training

The National Memorial Arboretum is the perfect venue for developing an understanding of Remembrance, memorials and the impact of conflict, as well as a whole host of other subjects including science, literacy and geography. We support various curriculum-based objectives through a fully inclusive learning programme for groups to enjoy, which actively engages visitors of all ages.
