At the present time there is an extensive programme of what would appear to be reconstruction. The car park is shingle and does create dust,there is no charge although donations can be given in the shop (Not Obligatory ). There is no fee to enter,so the car park is left to your conscience. The site itself is both informative and... More

We took the train tour to get a general picture of the area. The Arboretum covers 150 acres. The volunteers appear to be people who have served in the armed forces and all very helpful. The memorials include more than soldiers who have fought in various wars. One such memorial is to stillbirth and neonatal death charity memorial. There is... More

It has changed so much over the years but is still a place that gives me a thrill every time I visit. From the largest memorial (the... More

Such a peaceful place, which changes every time you visit. Memorials for an extremely wide range of groups, not just military. Free entry, but small fee to park car.

As the title says, as a tribute to all those who died, sometimes in horrific circumstances for King/ Queen and country. A warm welcome at the visitor centre, shop, toilets and café clean and friendly. The grounds and memorials are well laid out and with the help of a map, purchased at the shop I had a tick list of...
