We are currently experiencing flooding in parts of the Arboretum. If you wish to visit a specific areas of site please talk to a member of the team, who can advise the best route.
The National Memorial Arboretum will remain open to pre-booked visitors from the local area for outdoor exercise following the introduction of new national coronavirus restrictions from Tuesday 5th January. People visiting the Arboretum must follow the latest government guidance and anyone advised to self-isolate or shield should not visit the site at this time.
Access to the Arboretum will be via the Remembrance Centre where our visitor toilets remain available. A limited take-away service is available from our Coffee Shop kiosk.
We are currently unable to offer dine-in options in our Restaurant and our talks and tours are unavailable. Our Gift Shop is closed.

Created to support organisations hit by the global pandemic, the Heritage Emergency Fund contributed toward the cost of ongoing essential grounds and memorial maintenance while the 150-acre woodland and garden site was closed to the public.
Philippa Rawlinson, Managing Director of the National Memorial Arboretum, said: “We are proud of our status as the nation’s year-round centre of remembrance and were devasted when we had to close our doors in March. It was a fantastic moment when we were finally able to welcome the public back to the Arboretum for pre-booked visits from 8 June and visitors were able to explore our 150-acre site once again.
