In this session you will learn how the Second World War impacted on children’s lives around the world. Follow these activities to learn about children who were evacuated in Britain and how the war changed children’s lives in other countries.
General admission tickets are released each Thursday and can be booked up to 2 weeks in advance. People visiting the Arboretum must follow the latest government guidance relating to travel and social distancing, and anyone advised to self-isolate should not visit at this time.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement that the final stage in the roadmap for lifting the national restrictions will be delayed, we wanted to reassure you that the outdoor events that we have planned for the summer will still be able to go ahead. These include our Armed Forces Day celebrations (26-27 June), Luna Cinema (16-18 July) and our Summer Proms (7-8 August).
The Chapel, Far East Prisoners of War Memorial Building, indoor seating in our Restaurant, our Shop, some exhibition space, and most other indoor areas at the Arboretum remain open.
We are legally obliged to ask all visitors over the age of 16 to either check in with the NHS Test and Trace App or to provide contact details upon arrival.
