What is the National Memorial Arboretum?

The Arboretum honours the fallen with 50,000 maturing trees surrounding 200 memorials, including the striking Armed Forces Memorial.

Open daily (except 25 December) with free admission, the park currently hosts around 300,000 visitors and over 200 events each year with an additional Act of Remembrance and Silence held daily.

For Servicemen and women or students, veterans or families of those lost, the Arboretum is a tranquil and powerful reminder of those who have given their lives to ensure our freedom.

A recently-confirmed £15.7 million redevelopment campaign will see a new Remembrance Centre taking pride of place in the Arboretum, scheduled for completion in 2016.
