Set in almost 2,500 acres it easily absorbs the number of daily visitors, the volume of visitors only being noted by the full car parks. Car parking is £3.00 which we were unaware of prior to the visit, a fair charge but we struggled for the change. The tranquillity of the park is truly absorbing, and is the same peacefulness... More

Me and my mum visited the National Arboretum yesterday. On arrival we were greeted by staff advising on the centre. We spent the first hour wandering at our leisure and then went to The Church for a brief welcome talk. This is highly recommended as we were given a huge insight into the centre and key places to visit. From... More

A wonderful day out, a great place to pay respects to all our fallen service men and women. Very peaceful despite the large number of people visiting.

A lovely place to visit with very friendly staff. £3 for the car park + whatever you feel like donating. Cafe on main centre and train/electric buggy rides for the less mobile. The stone memorial in the centre is a fitting tribute to the armed services that have fallen in battle over the years. Very peaceful (except for the day... More

My family and I visited the National Memorial Arboretum the other weekend and really enjoyed our visit. It is absolutely huge so you could definitely go for a whole day out. We didn't get to see all of it in an afternoon so will definitely return. It was really beautiful and peaceful, really recommend.

We travelled from the north west for a day trip. We were not disappointed. It is a lovely calm, tranquil place. Gives us all time to reflect on the people that gave the ultimate sacrifice. The memorials are all beautiful and special. We we were especially moved by the Shot at Dawn memorial.

Lovely place to visit, peaceful and well kept. Quite an emotional place and need to allow a few hours to get around it all.

Not sure what to expect, but was overwhelmed, managed to make the 11 am 2 minute silence at the chapel, the introduction to the Arboretum very informative before and after the silence so try to make it for 10.30 if you can. We took the land train, again the commentary was very good,but keep focused or you will miss out,need... More

we got there early and the first thing was to get on the little train which took about 45 minutes for the tour with a good commentary then we were able to visit areas we had not been to before
