Information For Coach Drivers

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.

On arrival at the Arboretum please drive to the front of the Remembrance Centre. One of our team will meet and greet you and your group and provide you with any necessary information for your visit. Passengers can then disembark and coaches will be directed to coach parking. 

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


*excluding visits booked through our Learning Team.

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


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

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.
