I never expected anything like this! A very moving and poignant place that has been done so well. The attention to detail is outstanding. Thank you for creating such a place of Rememberance

Excellent place to visit. 20 minute drive from Lichfield. I believe you can also get there by bus. Beautiful grounds and lots of memorials for past wars and conflicts. There is a nice restaurant there also. It is not designed for the young. Anyone under 30 will probably be bored. There is a trolley bus that does a guided tour... More

No visit to Lichfield would be complete without visiting the nearby National Memorial Arboretum. Even if you don't have any family or friends who served in the forces you can't fail to be impressed by the shear scale of the place and the quality of the memorials. Entry is free of charge although donations to the charity are always welcome.... More

This is a must see for visitors from the area, the region, nationally and internationally. The Arboretum is laid out in a way whereby tribute is given to many nations who lost servicemen post 1945. The main memorial is just wonderfully designed with every serviceman's name carved on the marble. It is designed in such a way that there are... More

Well worth a visit, easily accessible and brilliantly maintained. A vast amount of memorials dedicated to many groups who have served their country and experienced loss. The main memorial is stunning. Make sure you leave time to walk round carefully.

The feeling of peace and tranquility at the National Arboretum cannot be equalled. It is truly amazing and humbling. Walking down the tree avenues where each tree is dedicated to a man that won the VC for valour is beyond words. I absolutely recommend this to anyone, of any age. The wall of names is a sight to behold. I... More

I have been to the arboretum on a number of occasions. Free entry, you just pay for parking. There are donation boxes there for you to give a contribution towards the up keep etc. It is beautiful to walk around especially when the sun is out. You can't help but feel admiration for all of the soldiers who served for... More

A most splendid place to visit. The whole layout has been well planned. Done tastefully and with such respect. Very peaceful. Coverage on all areas since World War 1 to the present day.
