The National Memorial Arboretum
With so much to see and do here, it helps to plan your day in advance. Prepare yourself for a memorable visit with our helpful guidance, local knowledge and travel information. We are open daily (except Christmas Day) from 9am until 5pm and dusk in winter months. Entry into the Arboretum grounds is free but donations are appreciated.

Undiscovered Arboretum Buggy Tours
Our 150-acre site is full of treasures to be discovered, although some of these are a distance from our visitor centre. Join one of our expert guides on a buggy tour to ensure you don’t miss out on visiting Watersmeet, the Christmas Truce Memorial and the Allied Special Forces Memorial Grove, plus many more. 50 minutes. £5 per person, £2 per children (5-12 years).

Guided Walks
The stories behind our memorials and the symbolism within them are fascinating. Our volunteer-led walks provide you with the chance to hear some of the best anecdotes and tales of heroism and comradeship from 1914 to the present day. 45 minutes. £3.00 per person.  11.30am and 2.30pm

Land Train
Complete with pre-recorded commentary, the Arboretum’s land train is an excellent way to take in a large proportion of the site’s fascinating memorials. Each train has wheelchair access and can comfortably sit 54 people. We recommend pre-booking for groups of 10 or more people wishing to travel together as the train is very popular. 50 minutes. £5 per adults, £2 per children (5-12 years).

It is free to enter. They rely on visitor donations to remain open (it costs £3,745 per day to run the Arboretum), all donations are much appreciated...
A daily parking charge of up to £3 applies (funds are used to maintain the car park).
