I have served for over 25 years in the regular army like my father before me and grandfather before him. I first visited in 2014 and have gone back on at east 10 occasions since, discovering something new and special each visit. I have four children aged 5 -14 and they have never once been bored. Moving, serene, peaceful and... More

We visited the National Memorial Arboretum as we were staying nearby and it is a place that I defy you not to be moved by. The central hill with the names of those who have their lives for us is beautiful but the statues in the centre are so moving, I had tears in my eyes. Everyone should visit at... More

Having served my country it was so nice to see how well the National memorial Arboretum was maintained. They are just building a new visitors Center that will be ready this year. I think when you walk around it lets you reflect and realise just how much others gave for us. It is a very worth while place to go... More

Lots to look at - went during a week day and it was lovey and quiet and peaceful. Had Really Helpful staff and nothing was too much trouble. Restaurant serves Hot drinks / cold food / hot food. Can imagine it would be beautiful in the summer and on a snowy day!!

Definitely worth a visit, it makes a lovely walk with plenty of opportunity to pause and think. The main car park is a little bit of a walk away so check if you're going with anyone who struggles with mobility.

Visited the NMA several times now and always find something different. A remarkable tribute to those who have served and a place that you can visit again and again

A wonderful place to visit for a whole day or just to pop in for coffee. There is something for everyone, trails and clues for children. A road train for those with mobility problems ( and those that like the ride). The 'Shot at Dawn' memorial is visited as part of the schools' GCSE syllabus and moves me to tears... More

We spent two half days visiting the Memorial, we could have spent longer if we wanted to. There is more to this than meets the eye and well worth a visit to make you realise that there are memorials for those who were a part of conflict that you wouldn't have though of.

I could spend days at a time here and always find something new on each visit. As an ex-serving soldier of 23 years I'm glad we have a place like this.....
