This is a must visit. It brings home all those who gave so we may live in freedom. There is a small train that takes you around pointing out the main points of interest.

This is a fantastic place. A very nice place to visit for families whether it be the general public, families of the fallen or current service families paying their respects. The layout is excellent, the staff are very helpful and the cafeteria is very good. You can take your own picnics. There is a short walk from the car park... More

Very thoughtful place to visit, memorials to all services including foreign servicemen that gave their lives for world peace. Peaceful to walk around and you leave with a feeling of pride in our servicemen and women and the sacrifice made in the pursuit of world peace.

This is such a special place that makes any visit so worthwhile. It makes you think of the sacrifice that men and women serving in the armed services have made for their family, friends and country. Reading the names of those who have fallen since 1945 was very emotive, there are just so many names. Everything has been so well... More

A truly moving experience. Was busy when we went but going around it felt as though we were in a church really wonderful. Would recommend it to anyone. After being recently to Pearl Harbour the Arboretum is so much more.

My first visit to this beautiful place.....it is very moving with over 300 memorials set in a lovely landscaped area, not all these are for the Armed Forces, though the main one is impressive, but some smaller areas dedicated to W.I. ,Boys' Brigade Bevin Boys etc.....well worth a visit!

Went on the land train all around the Arboretum and then wandered around taking in all the wonderful sculptures and memorials. It is a lovely peaceful place and I found my late fathers regiments garden and then in the POW exhibition I discovered my uncles name listed as one of the men who died in a Japanese POW camp. It...

Have just visited this fantastic place . Thought we would be there for about an hour, 4 hours later we left and still had not seen everything. I know it is a memorial park but it is not a morbid place.

This is a truly beautiful place to remember and reflect on all those fallen. The train is an excellent way to see all the different memorials and to learn about them. We had coffee and cake in the cafe and it was delicious. A wonderful place.
