The National Memorial Arboretum is open freely to all, year-round from 10am-5pm (closes at 4pm from 15 Nov), every day except Christmas Day.
Entry to the Arboretum is free, but for everyone's comfort we are limiting the numbers onsite. We recommend pre-booking your visit to guarantee entry. You can check our latest availability and book online using the link below.
We are currently experiencing intermittent technical difficulties with our telephone systems if you'd like to get in touch with the Arboretum team please email email@example.com. If you are trying to make a booking for parking tickets, mobility scooters or an event please consider visiting our online booking portal.
Visitors are advised that the Coffee Shop is currently closed. Our Restaurant is open from 10am - 5pm.
Pulling into the main car park, there are two coach ‘drop off’ bays, where your passengers can disembark. Your driver will then be directed to coach parking facilities.
When you pre-book your visit with us, your coach driver will also receive a voucher on arrival to spend in our restaurant.
In September 2017 we were awarded with 'Coach-Friendly' Status. The status recognises and rewards the commitment made by sites such as the National Memorial Arboretum in understanding the requirements of coaches and their passengers, while also providing first-class facilities, access and information for drivers
If you are planning an overnight stay, visit our partners at Enjoy Staffordshire to see a list of local hotels and B&B’s.
You could spend a whole day or more exploring the Arboretum, but if you do want to discover the wider area there is lots on offer. Why not combine a visit to us with one of the other exciting attractions in Staffordshire or the National Forest.
Rest Stops As a free to enter site, we provide the perfect rest stop for groups travelling elsewhere. Located just off the A38 between Lichfield and Burton upon Trent, we are ideally located for a short stop before reaching the M6, M42 and M1. Spend an hour with us and sample our homemade cakes, enjoy a pot of tea and take in our amazing landscape.
