My wife and I visited the Arboretum today, with my sister, whose leg was in plaster, after she fractured her ankle recently. The "disabled " facilities were fantastic, all the volunteers were so kind and we thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Thank you!

A huge set of memorials set in beautiful grounds. The Memorial dominating the park for soldiers who have lost thier lives after world war 2 is impressive. Its moving as there is still space where they add names. The Polish Monument is great giving a breakdown of what each of their services contributed in World War 2. A lot of... More

We visited with friends from the Walsall branch of NHS Retirement Fellowship. We attended the introductory talk in the chapel by Martin, he was very knowledgable and gave us some pointers for our visit. We joined the Land a Train trip around the site, listening to the commentary was well worth the £5 fee. Next time we'd like to try... More

We have been wanting to visit the Arboretum for sometime, so decided to come up and stay in a local hotel for a couple of days. We certainly were not disappointed, we spent a very pleasant few hours (allow a days visit to do it justice) wandering around the site. As in a previous review we would recommend buying the... More

Coming from overseas we had been told about the Arboretum but family members living within a three hour drive had not heard of it and we were surprised that there were no signs on any of the major highways indicating the way to the site. Five of us visited with a 92 year old easily handling the scooter which was... More

my wife and I wanted to visit the Arboretum so stayed in a local hotel for two days as we thought it would be nice to take our time to see all that was there. I personally was a little disappointed as I thought this was an Arboretum dedicated to the services but found out its for all and sundry.... More

We visited for the first time on Easter Sunday not really knowing quite what to expect, was it a forest or a war memorial? Well, it's both, with the trees having significance to the memorials they are near to. We started the day with a short presentation in the chapel followed by a 2 minute silence at 11am, which happens... More

As locals, we have been many times but on this occasion we took our friends from Somerset who were looking for his father who was killed on the Burma railway. He had had no luck on such places as ancestry etc but there in the records at the Arboretum were details of his father and a photograph of where the... More

Visited over the Easter Weekend for the first time and was blown away but the beauty of the place. Memorials featured for all aspects of our service history come in all different shapes and sizes, each one beautiful in its own way. We where particularly drawn to the new Naval memorial which has the different coloured panels that in sunlight... More
