Breath takingly moving and special place

This is one of the very few places you really can't describe, you must visit, one of the most moving and powerfully emotional places I've been in my life.

Lunch was excellent. Meeting in chapel informative and reverential. Even though it was November still appreciated how beautiful it must look in spring-summer. Mini train useful except when I wanted to find a specific memorial in the middle - muddy

We visited the Arboretum with friends, every body should visit the Arboretum. This place is run by volunteers and their is no charge to visit you can leave a donation if you wish.

Called with a coach trip on Sunday 17th May What a wonderful place. I could say so much about it but I think it is somewhere you should experience and draw your own conclusions, but it is definitely somewhere everyone should visit. A truly memorable experience.

So many memorials in an amazing space. Walked for over 5 hrs and still didn't see everything. Take a picnic loads of beautiful spots to sit and rest a while. Shot at Dawn extremely poignant.
