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.
With flexible indoor exhibition spaces, and 150-acres of open woodland, there is always something unique and interesting to see on your next visit.
At the heart of the Remembrance Centre is a fascinating, interactive exhibition called Landscapes of Life. This exhibition provides a preview of the Arboretum and an introduction to the concept of Remembrance and why it is an important human need spanning thousands of years. With audio visual displays, hands-on interactives, artistic interpretation and the opportunity for visitors to share their experiences, it's the perfect start to a visit.
We also host an exciting temporary programme throughout the year, featuring a changing selection of exhibitions, galleries and installations. In the past we have partnered with 14-18Now, Manchester Art Gallery and Kew Gardens, amongst many other well know names.
Located in the Arboretum’s Far East Zone, and visible from the car park, the Far East Prisoners of War Memorial Building tells the stories of those interned as prisoners of war during the Second World War, through the use of artefacts and immersive interpretation.
