We go to the arboretum 2 or 3 times a year and always have a fabulous time. The staff are brilliant and love working here because they engage with you to explain where certain monuments happen to be located. There is a lovely café which serves very pleasant snacks, sandwiches etc. or you can also purchase hot food and hot soup etc. Loved the gift shop with some unusual gifts - some are related to poppy day but most aren't so you can pick up a lovely gift for someone's birthday or Christmas e4tc.

You might think it sad to visit here, but actually its quite uplifting. The staff are great, good shop, great food etc. on site. Free to get in and parking is £3.00 per vehicle for the day. Lots of blue badge disabled bays.
Go on the Land Train as this will take you round the whole site for almost a hour with full commentary which means you don't miss anything and you get to see the parts you want to see. The main part is awesome..........a must to visit

The National Memorial Arboretum a very interesting and moving visit. It’s very well laid out and the memorials are all very different and appropriate to their commemoration. Shot At Dawn is particularly moving and also the Far East exhibition.

You cannot fail to be impressed with this wonderful place . The stories behind many of the memorials are spell binding and emotional . Well worth taking the train or having a guide
