Visiting with dogs

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.

Until further notice access onto our grounds for dog walkers will be via the Remembrance Centre. 

Dog walkers are welcome to use the designated hard-standing dog walking paths on site, and a special dog walking map is available free of charge. This can be collected from our Remembrance Centre or downloaded below. 

Dog waste litter bins are available along the designated dog walking paths and we thank you in advance for using them. There are also tether posts around the site to allow visitors to explore memorials off route. 

Our Coffee Shop is currently closed.

For our regular visitors, the Arboretum also offers an annual parking pass at £25 for the year. These are available to purchase from the Welcome Desk or over the phone on 01283 245 100.

Please note that due to the nature of our site and for the comfort of all our visitors, only working assistance dogs are allowed on the memorials.
