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.
Our friendly team of volunteers are always happy to help visitors locate memorials and individual dedications in our grounds.
You can view a list of the current memorials at the Arboretum and discover more information about some of our most recognisable memorials can be found on our Memorials pages.
Maps and guidebooks which provide more information about the memorials and where you’ll find them in our grounds can be purchased from our Welcome Desk and online. The Arboretum is a charity and by buying a copy of our map and guidebook you will be supporting our work helping us to keep important stories alive.
