The Arboretum is now open for pre-booked visitors only. Bookings are made per vehicle and can only be made up to two weeks in advance.
In line with Government legislation, we ask all visitors to wear masks in all indoor spaces.
We have implemented new procedures to help keep our visitors and team members safe, including one way systems, additional cleaning regimes, amended food offer, digital chapel welcome talk and reduced daily capacity.
Our restaurant is currently offering a carry out and table service offer. If you wish to dine inside the restaurant, please book a table with our food services team on arrival.
Please note that by law you can only visit in groups of up to 6 people (unless you are visiting as a household or support bubble which is larger than 6).
Although we are eager to welcome you back to the Arboretum, please do not visit if you are required to remain in isolation due to current Government guidelines.
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. The gates of our car park will remain closed until shortly before our site opens at 10am. 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.
Vehicles unable to present a booking confirmation will be unable to park and you will not be able to gain entry to site
All visitors, including dog walkers, are required to enter our site through the Remembrance Centre. In line with Government legislation, we ask all visitors to wear masks in all indoor spaces.

Our exhibitions remain closed at this time.
The restaurant is open to visitors between 12noon and 4pm for pre-booked dining. We have a smaller capacity than normal due to social distancing, so please ensure you speak to our food services team to book your table as your arrive at the Arboretum, if you would like to dine inside.
