Become a Friend

Open for visitors!

The National Memorial Arboretum is open freely to all, year-round from 10am-5pm, every day except Christmas Day.  We recommend pre-booking your visit, to guarantee entry.

Please note: on Wednesday 28 July the North part of the site (which includes, but is not limited to, the Royal British Legion Poppy Field, Allied Special Forces Memorial Grove and the memorials and individual dedications in the areas surrounding them and the UK Police Memorial) will be closed to visitors until approximately 2.30pm, whilst a private dedication ceremony takes place at the UK Police Memorial.  The new memorial will be open to visitors from Thursday 29 July. There will also be limited access to the memorials on the Naval Review until the service has ended at 2.30pm. We will be unable to offer our Stick Man Trail (our Stick Man sculpture will still be accessible), Outdoor Escape Challenges and Our Everyday Heroes activity packs on Wednesday 28 July. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.

One of the most rewarding ways to support the Arboretum is to become an NMA Friend. Our membership scheme provides lots of benefits to you, whilst you support our charity, ensuring we can continue our work.

 

Your support helps us do so much:

 

From beautiful spring mornings to wintry afternoons, you can help us to ensure we remain a free-to-enter site throughout the year for those who need us.

 

You can help us to share important stories by enabling us to inspire more than 20,000 young people who visit us each year. Through our learning programme future generations can discover more about past events and the importance of Remembrance. 

 

Our exhibitions and events bring the story and history of Remembrance to life. Your support will allow us to offer a wide variety of free-to-enter activities for visitors of all ages.

 

Our grounds and memorials require year-round care and maintenance. By supporting us you will be helping our dedicated grounds team to grow and develop our beautiful Arboretum, ensuring we are here for many years to come.
