Supporters and Sponsors

Open for visitors!

The National Memorial Arboretum is open freely to all, year-round from 10am-5pm, every day except Christmas Day.  We recommend pre-booking your visit, to guarantee entry.

Please note: on Wednesday 28 July the North part of the site (which includes, but is not limited to, the Royal British Legion Poppy Field, Allied Special Forces Memorial Grove and the memorials and individual dedications in the areas surrounding them and the UK Police Memorial) will be closed to visitors until approximately 2.30pm, whilst a private dedication ceremony takes place at the UK Police Memorial.  The new memorial will be open to visitors from Thursday 29 July. There will also be limited access to the memorials on the Naval Review until the service has ended at 2.30pm. We will be unable to offer our Stick Man Trail, Outdoor Escape Challenges and Our Everyday Heroes activity packs on Wednesday 28 July. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.

We are grateful to all our partners and supporters

As a charity we rely on the generous support of our donors, supporters and sponsors. We could not survive without them.

Our earliest days were made possible with land gifted from Tarmac, trees donated from the National Forest Company, and funding from the Millennium Commission. Since then, we have become part of the Royal British Legion and we receive a generous grant each year towards our upkeep. However, we still need our supporters as much as ever.

We are very thankful to the following organisations:

The Royal British Legion and branches

Ministry of Defence 

Heritage Lottery Fund 

National Forest Company

National Lottery Heritage Fund

Ride to the Wall
