Information For Coach Drivers

Visiting Us

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).

 

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.

 

Book Here

If you are travelling to the Arboretum in a coach, we kindly ask that you book in with us ahead of time so we can welcome your group upon arrival.

Pulling into the main car park, there are two coach ‘drop off’ bays, where your passengers can disembark. Your driver will then be directed to coach parking facilities.

When you pre-book your visit with us, your coach driver will also receive a voucher on arrival to spend in our restaurant.

Coach Friendly Status

In September 2017 we were awarded with 'Coach-Friendly' Status. The status recognises and rewards the commitment made by sites such as the National Memorial Arboretum in understanding the requirements of coaches and their passengers, while also providing first-class facilities, access and information for drivers

Accommodation

If you are planning an overnight stay, visit our partners at Enjoy Staffordshire to see a list of local hotels and B&B’s.

 

Visiting Staffordshire

You could spend a whole day or more exploring the Arboretum, but if you do want to discover the wider area there is lots on offer. Why not combine a visit to us with one of the other exciting attractions in Staffordshire or the National Forest.

Rest Stops

Rest Stops As a free to enter site, we provide the perfect rest stop for groups travelling elsewhere. Located just off the A38 between Lichfield and Burton upon Trent, we are ideally located for a short stop before reaching the M6, M42 and M1. Spend an hour with us and sample our homemade cakes, enjoy a pot of tea and take in our amazing landscape.
