Visiting Us During Coronavirus

This summer gather the family for one of our brand-new outdoor escape challenges, Operation Vault and Operation Kingpin.

 

The National Memorial Arboretum is home to many memorials to emergency and volunteer organisations, including the new UK Police Memorial, which is being dedicated this year.

 

Like all our emergency services, the Police Force works tirelessly to support our nation. They use their powers of deduction and team skills to solve cases and keep our country safe.

 

Test out your own skills and see if you can crack the case while learning more about our memorials to the emergency services, volunteer and civilian organisations alike.

 

Available from the Welcome Desk upon arrival.
