Information For Coach Drivers

Visiting Us

We are currently experiencing flooding in parts of the Arboretum. If you wish to visit a specific areas of site please talk to a member of the team, who can advise the best route.

 

The National Memorial Arboretum will remain open to pre-booked visitors from the local area for outdoor exercise following the introduction of new national coronavirus restrictions from Tuesday 5th January. People visiting the Arboretum must follow the latest government guidance and anyone advised to self-isolate or shield should not visit the site at this time.

Access to the Arboretum will be via the Remembrance Centre where our visitor toilets remain available. A limited take-away service is available from our Coffee Shop kiosk.

We are currently unable to offer dine-in options in our Restaurant and our talks and tours are unavailable. Our Gift Shop is closed.

If you are travelling to the Arboretum in a coach, we kindly ask that you book in with us ahead of time so we can welcome your group upon arrival.

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.

Coach Friendly Status

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

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.
