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.

Pre-book your visit

Ride to the Wall sees thousands of motorcyclists, both young and old, from around the UK come together to remember the names engraved on the walls of the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum.


It would be of enormous help to both the Arboretum and RTTW teams, if those wishing to arrive at the Arboretum by motorcycle could register their attendance in advance with Ride to the Wall and participate in one of the organised rides. 

Individuals who have registered to attend RTTW via the RTTW website, but plan to arrive in their car, will not be required to purchase an additional Arboretum parking ticket, please have your event wristband ready to present to our parking attendants at our Park and Ride Car park.
