HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

The National Memorial Arboretum, part of the Royal British Legion, joins the Nation, the Commonwealth and the rest of the World in mourning the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. HRH The Duke of Edinburgh was a Life Member of the Royal British Legion and he was gracious and generous in his support of the National Memorial Arboretum over many years.


We aim to cater for the needs of all our visitors and try to accommodate all access requirements where possible.

A network of pathways run around our grounds making it accessible for visitors who may have some special requirements.

As a maturing landscape with natural features it’s worth remembering that certain areas in our grounds may present challenges for those with special access requirements, many of our memorials for example are on grassed areas.
