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.

Challenge Yourself to Fundraise For Us

 

We all like to feel good and raising money for a worthy cause is great for morale and team building. It also really helps charities like us and not just because of sponsorship, but also because of the awareness it creates. Why not challenge yourself to do something special to support our charity. Here’s some ideas:

 

  • Push yourself physically with a sponsored walk, run, cycle, climb or swim
  • Gather with friends for a coffee morning or afternoon tea to raise funds
  • Dress down for the occasion at work or school
  • Get crafty and sell your homemade items for us
  • Have some fun - hold a comedy night, a fancy dress event…..relax in a bath-full of beans!

 

There’s so many different ways to raise money while enjoying yourself and remember, the Arboretum is about celebrating lives lived as well as commemorating lives lost, so it’s okay to enjoy yourself in a good cause.
