Access to the Arboretum will be via the Remembrance Centre and our visitor toilets there remain available. The new restrictions mean that our Shop is closed and we no longer offer dine-in options in our Restaurant, instead offering a limited range of take-away food and drink.
There will be no guided walks, talks or land train service, and all events planned for before 2 December will no longer take place. The outdoor Hold Still installation and our play areas will continue to be accessible. Though Stick Man will remain in our grounds we will not be issuing copies of the Stick Man Trail.
We will be introducing a number of new measures which apply to all visitors:
Although we are eager to welcome you back to the Arboretum, please do not visit if you are required to remain in isolation due to current Government guidelines.
We ask that all visitors planning to visit the Arboretum adhere to government advice and guidance relating to travel. Further detailed information can be found on gov.uk
Your tickets will be checked upon arrival at the car park by a member of our team who will direct you to a parking space. The gates of our car park will remain closed until shortly before our site opens at 10am. We ask that you do not arrive before your allotted time in order to assist with parking arrangements. Please do not park or wait on the road outside the Arboretum as this poses a hazard and has the potential to cause an accident. Please ensure you have your confirmation ready to present before you enter our car park.
Vehicles unable to present a booking confirmation will be unable to park and you will not be able to gain entry to site.
All visitors, including dog walkers, are required to enter our site through the Remembrance Centre. In line with Government legislation, we ask all visitors to wear masks in all indoor spaces.
Once you have entered our site you will be able to remain in our grounds until they close.
Our indoor areas including our, Shop, Restaurant, Exhibitions, Millennium Chapel and Far East Prisoners of War building remain closed at this time.
The Coffee Shop, located in Heroes' Square, will be providing a limited takeaway service.
We hope that you enjoy exploring our grounds. To help you get the most from your visit and to keep you and others safe we ask that you:
The Armed Forces Memorial will be open though some additional measures have been put into place to regulate the numbers of people visiting the memorial
Our grounds close daily at 4pm. Please exit our grounds and Remembrance Centre as directed.
