Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day

Visiting Us

Please note that by law you can only visit in groups of up to 6 people (unless you are visiting as a household or support bubble which is larger than 6).

The Arboretum is now open for pre-booked visitors only. Bookings are made per vehicle and can only be made up to two weeks in advance.

In line with Government legislation, we ask all visitors to wear masks in all indoor spaces.

We have implemented new procedures to help keep our visitors and team members safe, including one way systems, additional cleaning regimes, amended food offer, digital chapel welcome talk and reduced daily capacity.

Our restaurant is currently offering a carry out and table service offer. If you wish to dine inside the restaurant, please book a table with our food services team on arrival.

This year on Remembrance Sunday, we will be broadcasting a virtual Act of Remembrance from the Armed Forces Memorial on Facebook and YouTube. This allows as many people as possible to join us as we all remember everyone who has made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our freedom.


Visitors who pre-book for the morning of 8 November will have the option of watching the Act of Remembrance in person from the base of the Armed Forces Memorial. Please remember, due to Covid-19, the National Memorial Arboretum remains open only to pre-booked visitors for the foreseeable future.


As in previous years, our Armistice Day service on 11 November will be a private service, open to invited guests only. A limited number of tickets will be available to NMA Friends via a ballot (details will be sent directly to members). This service will also be broadcast for the first time on Facebook and YouTube, giving more people than ever before the opportunity to join us as we pay tribute to those killed during the First World War.
