A wonderful place of remembrance. Monuments to various groups, mostly military but also other sites for others who need to be remembered. Very good facilities of all sorts, plus a shop with many interesting items for sale.

A very emotional and humbling memorial to our serving forces, both past and present. We came away feeling thankful for our ancestors who lost their lives in the various battles/wars to give us a better future. The gardens and memorials are beautifully kept. The café served a lovely selection of food and drinks. There is a 'train' which takes you... More

A humbling and emotional visit to the 150 acre National Memorial Arboretum. A fitting tribute to all those who have given their life for this country since the end of World War 2 . Many of the regimental monuments are quite outstanding. If you are of advanced years or lacking in fitness as, understandably, most visitors seemed to be I... More

Magnificent. Humbling experience. Allow plenty of time to see the place. One visit might not be enough.

Have wanted to visit the Arboretum for a number of years but was unsure if it was dog friendly as it would mean a few days away in the caravan with 4 legged friend in tow! Well yes it is dog friendly but, they fail to tell you until you arrive that you need to follow the dog walk around... More

If you are ex military or the relative of an ex military serviceman the Arboretum is a must visit place. It is beautifully arranged and laid out and offers respectful remembrance in a dignified and humble manner

I recently visited this vast attraction, 150 acres of memorials from every possible war/conflict, dedicated to the many,many people who have died for their country or in the name of peace. I chose to do the land train tour which was informative but I felt like I was watching a game of tennis looking from left to right at each... More
