At the heart of our Remembrance Centre is a fascinating, interactive exhibition called 'Landscapes of Life'.

This permanent exhibition provides a preview of the Arboretum and an introduction to the concept of Remembrance, looking at why it is an important human need spanning thousands of years.

Experience the Arboretum through the seasons in our 270-degree film, discover what wildlife calls the Arboretum home, or uncover personal links to the site through our interactive databases.

Interactive Exhibits

Younger visitors will enjoy getting hands on by designing a memorial garden of their own, or taking a walk through our digital path of leaves and revealing the field of poppies beneath.
