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.

As the UK enters stage 4 in the Government’s Road Map out of lockdown, here’s how we plan to keep you safe and ensure that you enjoy your visit to our site: 

Capacity control – for everyone’s comfort we are limiting the numbers in our buildings and grounds and pre-booking will be recommended.  
Clean environment – we regularly clean all areas and encourage visitors to wash and sanitise their hands.
Leave space – we encourage all to be considerate of others’ personal space.
Face coverings – face coverings are welcome, and our team will continue to wear their face coverings indoors. 

Although we are eager to welcome you back to the Arboretum, please do not visit if you are displaying Covid-19 symptoms or are required to remain in isolation due to current Government guidelines.


Booking Information

Arrival and Parking

Your tickets will be checked upon arrival at the car park by a member of our team who will direct you to a parking space. We ask that you do not arrive before your allotted time in order to assist with parking arrangements. Please do not park or wait on the road outside the Arboretum as this poses a hazard and has the potential to cause an accident. Please ensure you have your confirmation ready to present before you enter our car park. 

All visitors, including dog walkers, are required to enter our site through the Remembrance Centre.  Face coverings are welcome at the Arboretum. 

Visitors wishing to check in to the Arboretum for the purposes of Test and Trace can do so using the NHS Covid-19 App upon arrival into our Remembrance Centre. Visitors without the app will be able to provide their details to our Welcome Desk team should they wish to.
