We are open to pre-booked visitors

The National Memorial Arboretum is open to pre-booked visitors. Tickets are released each Thursday and can be booked up to 2 weeks in advance. People visiting the Arboretum must follow the latest government guidance relating to travel and social distancing, and anyone advised to self-isolate should not visit the site at this time.

Access to the Arboretum will be via the Remembrance Centre where our visitor toilets are available. The Chapel, Far East Prisoners of War Memorial Building and Shop are now open. We also have indoor seating available in our Restaurant, as well as the outdoor takeaway service from our Coffee Shop.

 

We are legally obliged to ask all visitors over the age of 16 to either check in with the NHS Test and Trace App or to provide contact details upon arrival.

Further information about the measures currently in place at the Arboretum can be found by following the link below.

Visiting Us During Coronavirus

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

 

If you have any questions about visiting us please call 01283 245 100 or submit your question online

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.

Hire a Mobility Scooter

 

Whilst visitors are welcome to bring their own mobility aids to use, many visitors choose to hire a mobility scooter or wheelchair from us for the duration of their visit. Mobility Scooters can be hired at a charge of £5 for the day, and wheelchairs for a donation of your choice. 

 

We have a limited number of each available, so we advise pre-booking these online ahead of your visit.
