Attraction Information

The National Memorial Arboretum has something for everyone, from remembering loved ones, to a wonderful stroll surrounded by wildlife.
There are over 150 acres (about 60 hectare), to explore via a number of trails and walks. There are thousands of trees of several different varieties, plus more than 400 memorials dedicated to those who have fallen in service to the country. It also recognises non military organistations like the Police, and Fire and Rescue Services.
There is daily programme of activities such as guided walks and buggy tours, which you are free to join, or the kids may prefer to explore at their own pace. It can easily take a day to see everything here, but you can see the key items in half a day.
The Arboretum is home to a large variety of habitats including hay meadows, emerging woodland, marsh and riverbank. There is plenty of wildlife to spot, such as otters and hares, a number of birds like the skylark and lapwing, plus bats.
You are welcome to bring your own food and there are a number of picnic areas to choose from.
