National Memorial Arboretum

The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in our country. The Arboretum is part of The Royal British Legion family of charities. Sited in the heart of the Nation with 50,000 maturing trees and over 250 significant memorials, it is a beautiful and lasting tribute to those who serve their country or who have died in conflict. The Act of Remembrance, including a silence, is observed daily in the Millennium Chapel.

The Arboretum is home to the striking Armed Forces Memorial which commemorates those who have been killed on duty or as a result of terrorism from the end of the Second World War to the present day.

It has meeting, conference, Remembrance and event facilities, as well as an on site restaurant. Group packages available and welcome.

For children, don't miss the Wind in the Willows wood.
