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.

When planning your visit it’s useful to know that your four-legged friends can’t be walked in areas off the route or taken onto the memorials. They must also remain on their lead throughout your visit.
The pathways on the dog walking route are largely hard-standing and access friendly, though there is the option to walk through some grassed areas, you can see the route on the map below.
Entrance for all dog walkers is currently through our Remembrance Centre.
Working assistance dogs are permitted in all areas of the Arboretum, including our Restaurant and Gift Shop.
Annual parking passes are available to purchase by those who visit the Arboretum more regularly. The passes cost £25 per annum and will allow you to park without charge each time you visit us. To purchase an annual parking pass please call our team on 01283 245 100.
